Under the snow and the frozen ground, the natural world still teems with life.

You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can experience “Under the Snow” at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday, December 14, 10-11:30 a.m.

You can investigate this snowy underland first indoors, examining clues and identifying evidence. Then take those winter detective skills outdoors to collect real-time evidence of those winter inhabitants. Learn about animals lives during the winter and how they adapt to the snow.

The program includes an indoor lesson and an outdoor adventure. A snack is provided after the hike and a craft is offered if there is time.

Little Explorers takes place regardless of the weather, so be sure to dress for whatever it is.
