Day camps bring kids closer to nature

On Saturday, May 12, Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center presents, “Amazing Daisy,” part of their Wild Things Day Camp series.

The May 12 program for 5 to 7 year olds is designed to inspire love for plants and gardening by increasing awareness of native wildlife and the close relationship between plants and animals. Participants will study daises growing wild at Quinta Mazatlan, identify plant parts, meet plant pollinators, and prepare a mini garden to grow at home.

On May 19, the next session will be “Love Water” for ages 7 to 10 where kids will explore ponds and create their own water scope.

The day camp series is open to individual students as well as Scout Troops and designed to meet most requirements to earn a badge or award. Group and individual registrations are required in advanced with 50 slots available per session. The fee is $5 for each session for the cost of materials.

For more information and registration, call Quinta Mazatlan at 681-3370. They are located at 600 Sunset in McAllen.
