Chickadees are curious, energetic, and small but brave. In our series for homeschool families with young children, a parent or guardian and their little chickadee will explore together.

This season we will focus on a different group of wonderful wildlife each class. Learn amazing facts, catch and observe creatures up close, and spend time getting to know why each and every one is important to the larger ecosystem it is a part of. The last class will be spent doing a bioblitz, a special kind of challenge where you try to find every kind of creature living in one spot.

April 26: Welcome Back, Birds!

May 2: Marvelous Mammals

May 10: Amazing Amphibians

May 17: Reptile Round-up

May 24: Incredible Insects

May 31: Bioblitz: Plants and Animals of the Pond
