    November 4 and 5: SkeletonsSkeletons aren’t just for Halloween – our bodies have skeletons and so do lots of other creatures. Did you know that turtle’s shell is part of its’ skeleton? No bones about it… skeletons won’t seem so scary once we learn more about them.
    November 11 and 12: Who? Owls!Owls are one of the most intriguing predators of the night. In this program, we will discover what makes these nocturnal creatures such silent and efficient hunters. Wednesday class is FULL.
    November 18 and 19: Oh DeerCome with us as we look for signs of our majestic friend of the woods, the white-tailed deer. We will head out on the trails to discover what they eat, where they sleep and how to track them. We will prance around and wave our white tails as we learn about all the things deer need to survive.
    November 25 and 26: Nuts to YouLet’s go nuts and have some fun! On a walk, we will discover and collect different types of seeds and find the plant that they come from. Afterwards, we will store our cache in a safe place for the animals of the forest.
    December 2 and 3: Star GazersUp, up and away we go as we take a journey into the sky. We will learn about the planets, stars and the moon. Come join us as we blast off and hopefully not get lost in space!
    December 9 and 10: Winter Wildlife TheaterEveryone is invited to a puppet show! Come see a show about how animals get ready for the upcoming cold season. We’ll go on a short hike and look for signs of animals who are getting ready for winter. Then we will all make a puppet to take home
