Every spring, while most of us are sleeping, amphibians are on the move. You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn all about these amazing creatures and their great migration this month at Little Explorers.

Little Explorers is presented 10-11:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of every month at Audubon Community Nature Center.

“The Great Amphibian Migration” will be the topic Saturday, April 13.

With the first warm rain of spring salamanders and frogs emerge from their winter hideaways and start to move to ponds and vernal pools to lay their eggs. After learning about the different kinds of salamanders and early frogs and what they need to survive, you will head out to look for signs of these amazing amphibians.

The program includes an indoor lesson followed by outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included. Little Explorers takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.
