Science Adventures in Nature is back for another round of fun in February! 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!
How to Stay Warm
February 2, 2021 from 1-4pm
Burr! Staying warm in winter is tough, even for the animals. For our first week of Science Adventures, we’ll explore animal adaptations for keeping in the heat. As we make our way around the preserve, we’ll learn how we can keep warm too.
Shelters in Snow
February 9, 2021 from 1-4pm
We have some snow, so let’s build snow forts! This week we’ll work together as a group to make different shelters. Through activities and games we’ll also learn about how people survived in the elements before living in modern homes.
Finding Our Way in Winter
February 23, 2021 from 1-4pm
Navigating the landscape in any season is challenging if you don’t have the right tools. This week we’ll put our sense of direction to the test! As we explore, we’ll learn about how animals navigate the winter months to find shelter and food.
* Please note there will be no Science Adventures on February 16 as day camp will be in session.
