February 24 and 25: Sensible Senses – What does a tree smell like? How do our taste buds work? We’ll answer these questions and more as we touch, taste, smell, feel, and see our way through this program. Join us for an exploration of the senses.
March 3 and 4: Bears – Learn all about bears… what they look like, what they eat, play some bear-y good games, and find out what special things they are doing this time of year!
March 10 and 11: Reptiles are Fun – After listening to a story, the children will meet our resident reptiles, including snakes and turtles. A fun reptile craft will complete the program.
March 17 and 18: Spring Winds – Spring is in the air! Join us as we discover how plants, animals and people use the wind. Have fun seeing which way the wind blows by using bubbles and make a windsock to take home.
March 24 and 25: Super Seeds – Discover the variety of small packages that seeds come in. Take a hike on the trails searching for those super seeds, and make a craft to take home.
March 31 and April 1: Life under Water – Some animals spend their entire lives under water. In this program, we will learn what it takes to stay under water for a lifetime. We will also take a peek at some exotic creatures that call the deep sea their home.
