Discover After School Program
October 28 - December 2Free
Hey Middle Schoolers! Come explore after school with us!
Discover After School is an after-school program set within neighborhood parks where youth choose activities like sculpting, journaling, and scientific explorations to discover the stories of nature and ourselves. Discover After School is a collaboration between Art Center East and La Grande Parks and Rec. This fall, we will visit either Riverside Park or Pete’s Pond once a week on Thursdays from 3:30p – 5:30p. La Grande Parks and Rec is providing transportation to Riverside, and youth will walk to Pete’s Pond from the Middle School (Blue Mountains Conservancy land is 1 mile south of the Middle School). The site is subject to change due to inclement weather or the accessibility needs of the group. Youth may get dirty and / or paint on their clothes. Please plan accordingly.
Sign up today to discover our own stories and nature’s stories from new perspectives.
All after-school programs run from 3:30 – 5:30 PM.
Masks will be required.
The following area businesses and organizations are supporting this program through donations of time and materials: Cook Memorial Library, Greater Oregon STEM Hub, Blue Mountains Conservancy, and D&B Supply.
