life in the water
The kindergarten and school children were also enthusiastic about the crustaceans and aquatic animals, about which Daniel Fälchle and David Nadstawek from Müritzeum had a lot to tell. The small water creatures could be observed in containers with water. Anyone who wanted to take a closer look took a look into the microscope, under which a mosquito larva lay.
Bearskin to touch
At the “Bärenwald Müritz” stand, there was a bear skin, a replica skull, claws and a lot more to admire and, above all, to feel. Many children took the opportunity to touch Master Petz’ fur. When does an opportunity like this ever come up…
This successful day is not only thanks to the employees of the Müritzeum, but also to numerous supporters such as the Waren volunteer fire brigade and over 20 other partners. The “Stadtwerke Waren” provided food and refreshments for the boys and girls with drinks and the “Mecklenburger Backstuben” with delicious quark bread. The Wogewa contributed sweets and small gifts as rewards for participating in various activities.
