Family Nature Evening at the Armory Will Spur a New Holiday Tradition


Looking for a family fun evening? Then stop by the Armory on Thursday, December 20 for a Christmas story with a nature twist.  There will be a reading of Night Tree, a deceptively simple reminiscence of a boy’s youth when the family would visit nearby woods to decorate “their” tree for the animals.  They return home keenly aware of the mysteries and secrets of nature. It’s a heartwarming story that families will want to include in their own traditions.



 The event was prompted because the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy wants to offer seasonal activities. The Backyard Habitat group of FTFC group organized the event with the Fort Thomas Recreation Department. The event will provide food for birds during the winter and the hope is that families will do the same in their yards.

FTFC board member, Trisha Schroder, says, "We hope that families will leave this event with a new holiday tradition of pausing to think of nature at the holidays and decorating their own holiday tree for wildlife in their yard.

We will be making decorations for a tree that will be displayed outside at the Armory; however, we hope participants will go home and make more edible-ornaments for a tree in their own yard."


The event starts at 6:00 PM at the Armory.
