Science Adventures in Nature is back for December! This three week series offers hands-on experiences in nature to supplement your science curriculum. Every Tuesday, we’ll meet up for a three hour program packed with experiments, activities, and outdoor exploration. Rain, snow, or sunshine – we will happily go outside! $30 members; $45 public. Pre-registration is required and all three sessions are included in this price. This program is for children ages 5-13. Themes for each week are listed below!
Cozy Home, Cozy Animal
December 1, 2020
In our first week of Science Adventures in Nature, we’ll learn about the different types of homes animals build to survive the cold winter. We’ll follow their tracks to find out where they are keeping warm and build a home for ourselves too!
Predator vs. Prey
December 8, 2020
This week we are exploring predators and their prey. We’ll engage our senses to understand the different strategies and adaptations animals have to hunt or escape being hunted. Will you catch your prey or become a predator’s dinner?
Wonderful Winter Life
December 15, 2020
Did you know you can still find a lot of life in December? This week we will explore the preserve in search of plants, animals, and whatever else we come across! We’ll practice our birding skills, count squirrels, and search for natural materials for a fun craft.
More details: This program is planned to be entirely outdoors, so please dress for the weather. Lessons are suited for ages 5-13. Students must pre-register for the entire series.
