Winter Family Nature Night for Vista Peak

January 24, 2018

Families showed up with smiles and excitement as the fun evening began at Vista Peak. A smiling face was waiting at the Welcome Table where Shalana was there to greet everyone with raffle tickets and information! Activities were spread through the school, and pizza was freshly waiting in the cafeteria. This provided fuel for the many activity stations available throughout the halls. We even had a special visitor from Great Outdoors Colorado in attendance to see all the great things Family Nature Night offers for our SOLE families!

 

Activities offered ranged from the ever-entertaining trivia wheel to Generation Wild activities. How far can you jump? Our wonderful sponsors featured some amazing activities that had both young and old excited to participate.

The trivia and costume stops provided by US Fish and Wildlife Rocky Mountain Arsenal and Morrison Nature Center were also popular! Did you become a black widow spider or guess what a black footed ferret eats?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Denver Botanic Gardens brought an entire planting activity, and anyone who wanted to could take home seed they planted that night! History Colorado had some rousing games of history bingo going on while many posed with state symbols for a photo opportunity.

 

Archery had some friendly family rivalries occurring during the night with children and parents both stepping up to see who was the better shot!  Backyard Bass, located in the gym as well, gathered quite a following of students, some of whom could not even pull themselves away for pizza or raffles because of the fun to be had catching plastic fish!
