Autumn is the perfect time of year to collect wonderfully-colored leaves. At this Connecticut Forest & Park Association program, children can collect leaves at Goodwin Forest in Hampton, CT — and then use imagination, glue and paper to make a stunning collage of animals, scenes, or even abstract colors to take home and frame! All materials are provided; this program is free and recommended for ages 6 and above. Rain or shine. Contact: (860) 455-9534
