Families Enjoy Family Nature Night at Pinnacle


Families that came out for the Pinnacle Family Nature Night were greeted by an array of partners, activities, and of course pizza! Emily and Tabbi greeted each family that entered the school with a warm smile and raffle tickets at the Welcome Table. Families headed onward from the Welcome Table to either eat pizza in the cafeteria, explore partner tables in the hallway, or give backyard bass and archery a try in the two gyms.

At the Trivia Wheel, kid enjoyed spinning the wheel and answering a question or few about Colorado’s wildlife to win a prize. Puppets added extra fun to the trivia wheel at the Family Nature Night. Instead being asked a question about wildlife by a person, kids laughed as they may have been asked by the wildlife itself!

Lured by the smell of s’mores at Mountain Side Gear Rentals, people made their way into the main hallway of the school where many other partner tables were set up. Tempted by gooey marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, some made their first stop at Mountain Side Gear Rental to roast a tasty treat and learn about the gear available for rent. Others made a stop at the Bird Conservancy to see if they could identify which species of birds were hiding in the background with binoculars and learn about various bird adaptation.

Some families took their chances at history bingo with History Colorado. Here they also learned about many of Colorado’s state symbols and took the opportunity to use the state flag as a backdrop for pictures. Even the teachers could not resist joining in! The Butterfly Pavilion was ready to ignite aw with live invertebrates to look at and a pollinator game to educate people about the many plants that rely on bees and other pollinators. Kids had a blast making the wheel whirl and guessing which pollinator went with the plant the wheel landed on.
