Is it a bird nest, or a squirrel nest? Did you know that magpies build a roof over their nest? In some species of birds, both males and females raise their babies? How can you tell the ones that do this? Have you ever passed a tree and noticed hairs stuck in the bark and wondered who left them there? And did you know that the fastest animal in the world lives on the plains of Colorado? If you want to become a Nature Detective and learn the answers to these questions, and more – then this program is for you! That’s not all.
Enjoy a host of fun-filled activities . . . animal scavenger hunt, silent walking, and role playing. During silent walking, you’ll learn skills that will allow you to avoid stressing animals like birds, rabbits and deer when you’re in their presence. Oh! Did we mention – every child will be furnished their own digital camera for use during this half-day outdoor adventure.
