Have you missed visiting the Highlands Nature Center? Their staff misses you.
In the spirit of staying connected while staying apart, HNC is starting a “Plateau Pen Pal” program.
They invite anyone who is interested to write to the Highlands Nature Center, part of the Highlands Biological Station.
If you have a favorite memory from visiting, a drawing or photo you’d like to share, or just want to exchange a friendly hello, they’d love to hear from you.
Nature Center Education Specialist Paige Engelbrektsson will answer each letter.
There may even be responses from a few “guest experts” you may be familiar with from the Nature Center – experts of the scaly or salamander variety.
Engelbrektsson will also be mailing hard copies of our themed Nearby Nature activities, designed for kids and adults of all ages, to any interested pen pals.
For more information, please call 828.526.2623.
Engelbrektsson can’t wait to hear from you!
