September- Bugs Don't Bug Me
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 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 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 the fall.       


November- Nature Prepares For Winter

Cold snowy weather means different things to different animals so as winter get 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.
