Santa with Reindeer and Visits Via Helicopter
Santa has chosen to celebrate the holidays this Friday and Saturday, November 24th and 25th, at St. Louis's very own National Museum of Transportation. Friday the 24th, Santa and live reindeer will visit with children from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at our Orthwein Center. Bring those requests! Saturday the 25th, Santa flies in by helicopter near Orthwein at 10 a.m. and will be visiting with children until 2 p.m. Since Santa will have really enjoyed his Thanksgiving feast, there won't be enough room in the helicopter for Rudolph. No matter--seeing Santa fly in just to listen to kiddo's requests will be perfect! The miniature train will be operating both days from 9:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Can't make it to see Santa but still want to ride the train? Sunday the 26th would be a fabulous day for that excursion, 11:40 a.m. to 3:20
Greenscape Gardens – Thanks!
Thanks Greenscape Gardens Greenscape Gardens donated a sustainable native perennial garden just past the train tracks as you enter by the Orthwein Center. Greenscape's perennials manager Laura Tetley designed, and volunteers installed, the garden this fall. Please help us care for this garden by guiding children to the sidewalk in the center
Honeysuckle hackers unite Students from Minnesota’s Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), Parkway SPARKS! and Principia Middle School removed invasive honeysuckle shrubs along a large section of the creek leading to the pond and planted native seeds on the bare soil left behind. There’s still more to do. Please let us know if you have a group that would like to come out. Contact April at firstname.lastname@example.org to plan your spring work day
