2014

In 2014, Robinson Nature Center began construction on a new outdoor exploration area for kids, the Nature Place, that would include various opportunities for dramatic, artistic, physical and intellectual play inspired by elements in nature. Local carver, Eveyln Mogren, was asked to create several nature-inspired chainsaw carvings to outfit the space. 

At the 3rd Anniversary Open House, Evelyn demonstrated her technique for visitors. Check out the video below.

Evelyn Mogren is carving away! Come check out carvings she brought for display and watch her great work in progress at our Anniversary Open House today! #Robinsonturns3
