September- Life in a Meadow

Our meadow will be busy with activity during late summer so come and explore with us as we search for insects using nets, admire the late summer blooms of the wildflowers, and look for signs of wildlife that call the meadow home.



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 all around us.  We will collect 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 long winter ahead.  A walk outside, live animals, and a craft is planned.
