OREGON CITY – Children can explore the outdoors and learn about nature’s engineers during spring break at the Clackamas Community College Environmental Learning Center.

Nature is full of plants and animals that build amazing things, from beaver dams to finely woven nests, to seeds with “parachutes.” In this spring break camp, nature's engineers will inspire children to build their own nests, lodges, spider webs and flying objects.

The Environmental Learning Center is a great place for children, families and adults to explore the outdoors and learn about watersheds through hands-on environmental education. The 5-acre site includes walking trails, an outdoor amphitheater and interpretative signage. The site serves as an important stormwater facility for the college campus and provides critical wetland habitat for resident and migratory birds, such as great blue herons, flickers and mallards.

Camps are:

First and second grade

March 26, 27, 28 - attend one or all three

9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: $60/day

Third-fifth grade

March 27

9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: $65

“The Environmental Learning Center is a wonderful place for children to experience and learn about nature and the animals who live here,” Renee Harber, Environmental Learning Center Administrator, said. “Campers will learn about the environment through hands-on, interactive activities that are both educational and fun.”

Before and after care and scholarships are available. For more information or to request a scholarship application, email r@clackamas.edu">alena.schnarr@clackamas.edu.

CORRECTION, UPDATED DATE

 

OREGON CITY – The Clackamas Community College (CCC) Theatre Department opens the Main Stage with its production of the comedy “The Liar” on Feb. 28.

Directed by artistic director James Eikrem, “The Liar” features a dynamic ensemble of CCC students and community members with scenic and lighting designed by Chris Whitten, and costumes by Gina Piva.

An opening night reception will be held Thursday, Feb. 28, at 6:30 p.m. with music provided by CCC’s Jazz Combo under the direction of Music Department Chair Lars Campbell. Refreshments will be served.
