Our Feathered Friends program for ages 5 years and younger with a caregiver. What is unique about birds, and what do their characteristics (feathers, feet, beak, color, etc.) tell us about their life? We will read a bird-themed story, look at bird mounts, take a short birding hike to observe our local birds in action, then return indoors for hands-on ‘beak’ activities, and make a small bird feeder to take home. Join us, and help feed the birds!
Share your love of nature with your young child(ren). We will explore and play with nature while developing critical early childhood skills and growing self-confidence. The Mighty Naturalist Programs are geared toward children 5 years and younger with an adult caregiver to learn about animals, winter survival, birds, tracks, and more. Each program offers a different theme and activities to give you and your mighty naturalist many program opportunities. Invite your friends to sign up, too.
