Allegany State Park presents the opportunity for girls in grades 6-12 to experience and enjoy nature and science in a fun and interesting way with Outdoor Girls' Day on June 6, 2015.
The day will include banding songbirds, learning how to draw them, and looking for creek creatures and things that can be eaten in the woods. These hands-on nature programs will be presented by women in the natural science fields, such as Sharon Dehn from the Zaefel Nature Sanctuary; Jennifer Miller, Wildlife Artist; Jennifer Schilck with Jamestown Audubon; Dr. Mary Puterbaugh Mulcahy from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford; and Adele Wellman, Katie Vecellio, and Heidi Tschopp from Allegany State Park.
