Animals with Smell-o-vision

Wednesday, May 10 from 3:30-4:30pm. Our after-school program will explore animals with superior sniffers that find food, water and even mates. Program is open to all school-age children.

Spring Break Pics

Although our class size was small, we had fun! We learned and we crafted.

The Nature Walk enlightened us with frog egs and sounds, deer tracks, funny fungus, coyote scat, and Canada geese nesting & honking with the signs of spring all around us. We spent 1.5 hours walking and investigating the trails off South Grimes Hill Road of the Nature Preserve.

Our reptile program started with a half hour video on reptiles. How interesting! Then we got down to business personalizing our snakes.

The nature inspired art program proved to be just fun. We created beautiful butterflies. The photo cube was painted and adorned with seashells. We ran out of time, so participants took home shells to finish their cubes.

Here are some photos. Sorry we missed you.
