This four-session series introduces toddlers, accompanied by a favorite adult, to the natural delights of late autumn as mammals, birds, and even plants prepare for the coming winter. We'll go out for a hike to look and listen for signs of the season. This program is also offered on Tuesdays.
November 1: Life Under a Log
What is hiding under the rocks and logs of the sanctuary? Is it a centipede? Is it a salamander? Come find the hidden treasures beneath the forest floor.
November 8: Seeds Are Everywhere
How many different kinds of seeds can we find? Some can fly, some can stick to us, and some act as helicopters. We will examine seeds up close and blow seeds in the wind.
November 15: Fairy Houses
What would happen if you built a house for the fairies? Chances are high that you would see nature's visitors first. We will read a story about fairy houses and then venture outside to create our own.
November 22: Birds - Who Will Stay & Who Will Go?
We will meet some of the birds that stay in our area all year long and discover where they live and what they eat. Afterwards, we will make bird feeders to take home.
Meets in the Nature Center. Please dress for the weather since we will be outside most of the time. Limited to 9 adult/child pairs. The fee is per adult/child pair. Additional siblings (ages 2-3) pay half the listed fee. If you would like to register more than one child please call our office.
