Go exploring and find some birds! Students will learn about the many adaptations found in birds, and will learn what makes a bird, a bird. Activities include walking the park trails to search for winged creatures, and will learn to recognize several common species based on appearance and individual calls. Students practice using a field guide to identify birds in their native habitats. The program is an opportunity for young birders to get started on their “life list” and launch a life-long hobby.
In the early fall, insects are everywhere! Kids will use their senses of sight and hearing to search out various “critters” in different types of habitats. Participants will learn about and view insects using bug boxes and magnifying glasses. Get ready to be amazed by the incredible variety of insects we can find right underneath our noses!
