Meet at the covered area at McLane Nature Trail (lower lot) at 1:00.  Our party will be over by 4:00pm.

This is for younger kids.  Older kids (over age 10) can participate as helpers by special arrangement.

Dress for the cold and slow walking, with gloves and hats and rain gear.

Bring your face masks for COVID safety.

Hot natural beverages, party table settings, and some tiny gnome treats will be provided. 

Please bring a treat to share at our tea party as well.  Please note that gnomes only like natural items in very small sizes (for example, sunflower seeds.)

Each kid will go home with a gnome to keep them company during the holidays.
