To the Editor:
Get the children outdoors to learn about the natural world around them! Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, Inc. (CHEC) will be conducting Spring Break Camp 2019 at Cedar Point Park for children ages 8 to 12 beginning Monday, March 18 to Friday, March 22 from 9 am to 3 pm.
Our theme this year is “For the Love of Nature,” and the cost is still only $150 ($135 for CHEC members) per child for a week of adventures and excitement!  Planned activities include guided walks and professional speakers on birds, shells, bees (taste local honey) and other local wildlife, in addition to collecting and pressing favorite flowers, wading into Lemon Bay, and more games and crafts to explore the diversity of nature.
Cedar Point Environmental Park, a Charlotte County-owned facility, is located at 2300 Placida Road in Englewood. It is managed by CHEC, a nonprofit organization serving the Charlotte County community with environmental education, recreation, research and preservation land management.
Join the fun and call 941-475-0769 for further registration information and/or a copy of the planned agenda.  Space is limited to no more than 15 “campers.”
