The bead barons at Fat Cat Beads teach students how to craft beaded jewelry during two-hour classes held on weekends and weekday evenings. Beginners classes lay out the basics, and sessions on the russian spiral or viking knit teach pupils more complicated designs. Cuff-style bracelet classes illustrate how to suspend beads in loops of leather cord, a skill that, once mastered, will give students a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost. Students should check the necessary supplies for each class, as some require pupils to bring or purchase beads.
With 97 acres of available teaching space, trails wind through prairies, wetlands, and woodlands at Aldo Leopold Nature Center, stitching the disparate environs into a hikeable network ripe for exploration. Through the educational programs and interactive exhibits, the naturalists and volunteers that run the center equip members with the knowledge necessary to fully commune with the land and its inhabitants. Exploration guides chart preset courses through the park, and the center's exhibits break down natural phenomena, investigating everything from what causes global warming to how to tell which clouds are actually filled with chocolate milk. As a reward for supporting the nature center through their annual contributions, members also gain access to special programs such as the Fall Fest and public events including Maple Syrup Fest.
