July 7 and 9: Story Time Forest – Have you ever wanted to listen to a story under a cool canopy of leaves? Walk with us to a special place in the woods. We will spread a blanket on the ground and hear two new stories in the shade. Bring a favorite stuffed animal to hug!
July 14 and 16: Nature’s Palette – Our world is full of color. Come out and discover the myriad of colors that paint the Watershed each summer. Weâ€™ll take a hike to look for Mother Natureâ€™s favorite colors, and make a craft to take home.
July 21 and 23: Woodpeckers – How does a woodpecker sound? Where does a woodpecker live? Weâ€™ll answer these questions and more as we explore the Watershed trails to learn all about woodpeckers. Weâ€™ll search for where they live, what they eat and learn how they find food.
July 28 and 30: Beautiful Butterflies – Butterflies are one of the most beautiful parts of summer. In this program weâ€™ll tour the butterfly house and learn all about the life cycles of these unique insects. Afterwards weâ€™ll try our hand at catching wild butterflies.
August 4 and 6: Chill Out – Discover the tricks animals use to keep cool on hot summer days. Find out if these tricks work for you too. Enjoy making a craft to help you â€™chill outâ€™ in the month of August.
August 11 and 13: Animals Around the World – Who lives where? We will look at animals that live in different areas around the world and then compare them to the ones that we have in New Jersey. Who knows where we will go?
