OKC MENTOR MOMENT - OUTDOOR AND ANIMAL ADVENTURES WITH PARKS IN FOCUS

  • Martin Nature Park 5000 W Memorial Rd Oklahoma City, OK, 73142 United States

A few months ago, we were introduced to an organization named Parks In Focus which aims to introduce kids to the wonders of nature and the joys of outdoor exploration through the medium of a camera lens.  After a few conversations with Parks In Focus staff, we have built an educational and exciting experience and we're looking forward to our first Mentor Moment of the Fall semester. 

WHEN:  AUGUST 15, 2015 // 10:00AM - 12:30PM

WHERE:  MARTIN PARK - NATURE CENTER LOCATED AT 5000 WEST MEMORIAL, OKLAHOMA CITY, OK 73142

WHAT:  Parks In Focus trip leader will provide each mentor / mentee pair with a digital camera and take us on an hour hike with instruction on picture taking techniques and outdoor flora / fauna and wildlife.  We will then move indoors for an interactive presentation with some of the Nature Center animals and finish our time together with a sack lunch.  Parks in Focus staff will later download pictures from the experience to CDs for eventual distribution to mentors and mentees.   

You can RSVP by e-mailing your mentee's name and age to advocate@thementoringproject.org.  We're really looking forward to being with you again in August!
