Author Darcee O’Hearn and kids get crafty at the Nelson Public Library.

Nelson Library’s Summer Reading Club gets earthy

Kids aged six to 11 years can learn how to make a survival shelter and a paracord survival bracelet this Wednesday

You never know when you might need a survival shelter, and you’re never too young to find out how to make your own!

Kids aged six to 11 years can learn how to make a survival shelter and a paracord survival bracelet this Wednesday, July 24 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Nelson Public Library with writer and forest educator Darcee O’Hearn. No registration is required — kids can just drop in.

Darcee is author of the Legends of the Forest series for children, which introduces kids to characters such as Leonard the Larch and Cedric the Cedar. Her love of nature and the outdoors prompted her to bike across Canada, where wildlife encounters included wolves and even a grizzly bear! Darcee’s programs are fun, hands-on, and educational.

This is the second program by Darcee as part of the Summer Reading Club activities at the library. Both programs are sponsored by the Arthur P. Campbell Project.

The Summer Reading Club has all kinds of activities for kids aged three to 12. For more information go to nelsonlibrary.ca or call 250-352-6333.
