Flying Away: Why do seeds take flight in the fall and more about plants
Plants give us food, medicine, clothes, and more! During our plant discovery program, we will hear a story about our local plant life cycle and use microscopes to learn about the important role our native plants play in our ecosystems. We will go on a seed and plant scavenger hunt. We will create a clay imprint with seeds and plant materials to take home. Participants will also get to take home seeds to plant that help our pollinators and native plants thrive.
Flying and Soaring: The Amazing Journey of Migratory Birds
During this program, we will discover the birds who fly thousands of miles each and every year. We will learn about our native birds and how they migrate, discover bird anatomy, and explore the delicate ecosystems that birds contribute to! We will go on a bird scavenger hunt. Create your very own bird print using high quality art materials to decorate and bring home.
A Universe of Stories: The Pieces of our Planet
During our Planet Discovery program, participants will begin to understand their role in the universe and in our environment. We will listen to a story about the science of planet earth and examine some geological features of our world. We will discover the pieces of our planet through artifacts and the natural world around us! Participants will then get to create their own clay mosaic earth using air dry clay and recycled materials to bring home.
