September- Incredible Insects
Butterflies are fluttering and bees are buzzing this time of year so we will explore for these insects and more in our meadow. We will also be doing some some fun crafts and activities that focus on these six-legged creatures.
October- Fall Fun
This is a fun time of year to take a walk out on the trails here at the nature center and experience the wonderful shapes and colors of the leaves that fall around us. We will collect some some leaves, do a craft, and learn about nature in the fall.
November- Nature Prepares for Winter
Cold snowy weather means different things to different animals so as winter gets closer we will find out what happens with many animals during this time and how they prepare for a lomg winter ahead. A walk outside, live animals and a craft is planned.
