The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum has invited the community to join them in celebrating nature and the change in seasons at their 8th annual Winterlight event on November 30.
Activities will include creating winter-themed crafts, enjoying homemade kettle corn while singing around the campfire, and learning about different birds during an outdoor nature walk.
“Back by popular demand, our magical forest will be set up for children to create handmade wrapped gifts to give to loved ones for the holidays,” says Keely Maddock, Program Coordinator with the City of Kingston. “We can’t tell you what the gift will be, but can guarantee your children will enjoy making it and giving it too!”
Craft stations will be set up throughout the museum for visitors to make environmentally friendly decorations and guests of all ages will be invited to “stretch their legs, minds and vocal cords at activity stations.” You can also enjoy a nature walk in the arboretum, learn how to identify birds with the Kingston Field Naturalists, or sing along with local musicians next to a campfire.
It all takes place on Saturday, November 30 from 10am to 5pm and admission is just $5 per person or one unwrapped toy per family in lieu of admission. Pre-registration online is strongly recommended.
The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum is located on the St. Lawrence River at Grass Creek Park, 2993 Highway 2 East. Learn more about the site and prepare for your visit by checking out their Winterlight page.
