SELF-Senior Environmental Learning and Fellowship Program
July 21 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
SELF, or Senior Environmental Learning and Fellowship Program is offered monthly for Senior Citizens to get together to enjoy friends, coffee, treats, and a presentation by a Sioux County Naturalist. It is normally held at the Prairie Woods Nature Center in Oak Grove Park.
However, for July, SELF will look a little different, given the circumstances. We have come up with a no contact version program for you to enjoy from the comfort of your vehicle! You will drive a loop making several stops. The loop will take around 30 minutes for each vehicle to complete. Volunteers will be stationed starting at 9:00 am, so feel free to come anytime between 9am and 11am-like an open house. If there is no line we will get you going, otherwise we ask you wait patiently and converse with those in your vehicle.
The following are your two options for the July 21st Flower Drive-By Tour.
Option #1 No Contact– Leave your windows up at each stop and either read the description provided to follow along or use the izi.travel app for a full Audio Tour. Volunteers will simply walk around your vehicle at each stop with the featured flower for your viewing pleasure.
The App: The izi.Travel app is a free app you can download to your smart phone. It will need access to your location while you are using the app, as well as your camera. You are welcome to download the app prior to attending but we will have wifi available and a Tec. helper ready to assist you if you want this option. THE APP IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THE PROGRAM, IT IS JUST ONE OF THE OPTIONS YOU CAN USE.
Option #2 Contact– Roll your windows down at each stop to listen to the volunteer’s short presentation. Volunteers will walk around showing you the featured plant and field any questions the best they can! You can still use the provided pamphlet to follow along.
*If raining, program will be postponed to Wednesday, July 22 from 9:00-11:00am. Changes will be made on our website and Facebook, and aired on KDCR 88.5 and KSOU 93.9.
Pre-registration is not required but appreciated at www.siouxcountyparks.org.
