Audubon Little Explorers are Nature Detectives on Saturday, August 13

What can you learn from exploring a tree with your senses of smell and touch, rather than your eyes?

Can you figure out what kind of animals are around just by listening?

Join the 3 to 8-year olds and their favorite adults who come to Little Explorers at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) on Saturday, August 13, 2022, 10 – 11:30 a.m., and learn to be “Nature Detectives.”

Make some nature discoveries and solve some nature mysteries using all
five senses to explore the world around you.

After a short indoor lesson, head outside on a guided exploration through Audubon’s gardens and grounds to feel and smell different plants and use your senses to look for evidence of animals.

A snack is provided after the hike, and a craft is offered if there is time.

The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for children ages 3 – 8 and Nature Center members.

Enrollment is limited to 15 children, 30 participants total.

Make reservations by Thursday, August 11, 2022, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or by going to AudubonCNC.org [2] and clicking through “Upcoming Programs.”
