I have partnered with our county park district for all of my STEM programs. We held one of our programs at a local park where we went on a hike and observed local and invasive species. I also partnered with a local gluten free bakery/restaurant. The owner hosted one of our discussions and provided participants with refreshments. She is a registered dietician and shared information with us on healthy eating. She has continued to participate in the programs.
My branch was closed for a month for a major renovation and attendance for all of our programs fell off somewhat this past winter. I’m hoping for a larger attendance for my programs this spring.
