Event Description

Join Lussier Family Heritage Center staff and Playful Acorns for a  morning coffee, tea, or snack with old and new friends while watching your children have fun and socialize in a laid back nature-themed play space. When you're recharged, head outside with staff to explore, play and make memories. We encourage you to bring your own coffee mug. 

The Pop-Up Play Cafe will meet in the LePine downstairs room at the Lussier Family Heritage Center. Staff will engage your children in nature free play, stories, crafts, and a chance to observe our nature center animals. If wanted, there will also be an opportunity to wander outdoors to our Story Walk®, prairie and nature play ground!
