When the seasons change, so do the life cycles of the plants and animals.  We’ll learn about how trees and animals begin and end. 

WINTER: Furry Friends   

Get introduced to the mammals of the foothills. We’ll learn where they live, what they eat, which ones are predators, which are prey and how you can tell which they are. We’ll look for tracks, scat and other clues of these animals.

SPRING AND SUMMER: Wildflower or Birds   

We’ll be looking at wildflowers along the nature trail with hand lenses or looking for birds or bird nests with kid’s binoculars.

We also offer weekly Preschool and After School programs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Check our programs page for more info!
