Science in the Park

The Flagstaff Festival of Science was a fantastic exploration of the various science based projects and agencies working and studying in Northern Arizona. The Festival was kick
started on Saturday, September 19th at Science in the Park. Located at Wheeler Park in downtown Flagstaff, the event had activities from a plethora of organizations including Willow Bend Environmental Education Center.

Willow Bend’s table was staffed by Val and Cassandra, and new Willow Bend Interns Helena and James. Our activities included a wildlife game matching items from such as horns, quills, and bones to the corresponding picture of the animal. Willow Bend also brought along their greater Flagstaff 3D Terrain Model and spray bottles to illustrate the movement of water on our landscape. kids and adults alike had a great time and was a wonderful opportunity to educate the public and get them interested in our environment.
