Itasca excels at kids' nature programs


One of the neatest programs around getting kids interested in nature is at Itasca State Park Wednesday mornings.

Called "Circle Time Under the Pines," the program is targeted to the pre-school set, but babies and school kids can still come and learn something in a fun atmosphere.

Naturalist Sandra Lichter does a terrific job teaching kids about nature's wonders.

They play games, read stories, sing songs, color and make projects.

It's a hoot.
