The Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center will be hosting the year’s first Mendenhall Minis series Jan. 11, at the visitor center’s Discovery Zone from 10:30-11 a.m.
Mendenhall Minis is an activities series for children ages 3-5 and their families put on by the U.S. Forest Service the second Saturday of each month. January’s theme is “Beaver Builders!” and participants will read a story about a creative young beaver and then children will build their own beaver structures, according to a press release from the Forest Service.
The Minis program runs through March and are aimed at pre-kindergarten kids and their families. Activities are free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Families are invited to explore the visitor center and other activities following the Mendenhall Minis activities.
