September- Plants on The Move

Plants grow in nearly every environment on earth and serve as food for people and animals.  Seeds from plants are spread in a variety of ways.  Come this day to discover the many different ways that seeds travel through demonstrations, hands-on activities, and a hike.



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, make a craft, and learn about nature in 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 animals during this time and how they prepare for a long winter ahead.  A walk outside, live animals and a craft are planned.

Registration for the Fall Series of the Knee-high Naturalists Classes will begin August 15th. Please call (616) 355-1057 or stop by the nature center to register.
