You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life are invited to “Take to the Sky” at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday, July 13, 10-11:30 a.m.

When most people think of animals that hunt, they usually think of coyotes and foxes, but have youever thought of birds?

This month Little Explorers will learn all about the different types of birds of prey, like hawks and eagles, and how they use their adaptations to hunt. These aerial hunters have some pretty amazing ways of catching their food.

After a lesson inside, you will head outdoors to look for birds of prey and take a behind-the-scenes tour of Audubon’s Bald Eagle enclosure. The program includes a snack and, if time and weather allow, a craft.

Little Explorers takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.

The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, July 11, 2019, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to auduboncnc.org/programs and clicking “Current Schedule.”

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