As spring starts to unfold on the sanctuary, we will take time to explore some of the creatures that become active when the weather warms. In March, it's all about birds. We'll look at bird nests, beaks and habitats. We'll discover what materials birds choose for their nests, and build a wreath from them, adding yarn, shredded paper and fabric, wool and animal hair, all designed to attract birds to your yard. In April we will explore local frogs and turtles. May's theme is long legless creatures - we'll end our series examining snakes and worms, dedicating one class each to the discovery of unique habitats, diets and life cycles of these very different, yet very similar animals.

Classes will be held outdoors except for extreme inclement weather. Health forms are required for drop off students. Families are always welcome to remain on the sanctuary.

Homeschool Classes for ages 5-7 and 12-16-year olds meet at the same time except the May 13th class.

Please note: This program will be conducted in accordance with current municipal, state, and Mass Audubon Covid-19 protocols. This program will meet and take place outdoors. Masks or face coverings are required for activities where participants need to move inside or during close contact outside. There will be opportunities for mask breaks as needed. A detailed confirmation letter will be emailed 24 hours before the program.

We look forward to learning with you!
