Nature Explorers

Description

This program is for children after school to engage and have fun while learning about the beautiful nature around us. Children will experience a fun outdoor outing with crafts and hands on activities.

 

Each session will run on Tuesdays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm at the Lawrence Nature Center.

 

Tuesday, October 6 - “Water Witnesses”

When you are a water witness you have to get ready to get your feet wet and look at the tiny friends that help keep our water clean. Our nature explorers will help learn about the stream, so please make sure explorers are ready to get their feet wet for this week or come wearing your rainboots with a change of socks. Explorers will learn about keeping our streams healthy and what kind of creatures we can find.

 

 

Tuesday, October 13 - “When Summer Leaves We Find Fall Foliage”

Explore the fall foliage of the nature preserve as the last of summer leaves. Our nature explorers will participate in a fall plant identification scavenger hunt and participate in a nature based art activity. Our young naturalists can practice plant and tree identification while enjoying time with our small group.

 

 

Tuesday, October 20 - “Animal and Bird Detectives”

Our nature walk this week will be observing and identifying the birds and pollinators that call the preserve home. Can you help us find clues to where they have built their homes? Together we will play a fun feather hunt game and learn to bird call this week. If you think you are a good enough detective to find the hidden feathers of the Lawrence nature preserve then we need you to join us! Join the fun and help us solve some natural mysteries!

 

Tuesday, October 27 - “Going Bats to the Future”

Let's go bats to the future and celebrate bats and our favorite nocturnal nature creatures. Nature explorers have the chance to learn about why these creatures are important to our ecosystem,  help balance the world we live in and why they are an important part of our future. It’s a spooky time of the year so you never know if there will be tricks or treats during this special week!
