Christmas comes early to Gap Nature Center

The piles of evergreen branches on the porch of the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s Osprey House, Slatington, say Christmas is coming.

And the Nature Center helps Christmas come along during its annual open house.

Director Dan Kunkle said the branches came from John and Barbara Egerton and from the Nature Center.

There were pine cones and ribbon for trimming.

And, inside, there were crafts for children to make, and snacks for everyone — though the adults were also having fun with the crafts.
