Learn the causes and kinds of meteorological activity in central Indiana at McCloud Nature Park during a program offered at 2 p.m. April 5.
The park’s naturalists will meet participants in the Nature Center for a discussion of why our weather patterns change from season to season and what causes Indiana’s occasional severe weather. They’ll discuss types of cloud formations, and some of the methods used to measure weather.
This program is designed for families of all ages and will last about an hour and a half, including some outdoor observation time to put the newfound knowledge to use.
Participants can also make a weather wheel to take home.
