Splicing

Come out to the park and “splice” up your life with this hands-on activity with a ranger learning about this valuable life skill that may get you out of a couple pinches in your life.  The best way to tidy up the ends of ropes or lines is by splicing back to itself by interweaving their strands.  A great lesson to take with you!
