Budding Naturalists, Fall 2017, Ages 1-5

Two five-week series from 10 – 11:30 a.m., starting September 12. Second series begins October 31.

 Preschool children ages 1-5 are not too young to be aware of and inspired by the world around them, so start your child on the right foot with a love of nature. You and your children or grandchildren will explore habitats in Earle Park at the Connecticut Audubon Society, 1361 Main Street, Glastonbury. 

The cost of the series is $50/child for Connecticut Audubon members, $60 for non-members.

September 12: Butterfly Habitats

Come discover Connecticut’s Butterflies and spend time searching Earle Park for these beautiful pollinators. Learn how we can help support their habitat and leave with a plant to begin your own Butterfly Garden at home!

September 19: Bug Out!

Even as summer ends, bugs are hard at work! Bugs are such an important part of our ecosystem, but are often misunderstood. Enjoy a morning learning about these critters and have fun searching for these often-hidden friends.

September 26: Feathered Friends

Join us to meet one of the Audubon’s resident birds and learn about one of their fascinating features—feathers! Have fun making your own feather creation and then spend time outside on a bird watching hike. Binoculars provided or bring your own.

October 3: Leaves

Leaves are more than just something fun to jump in! Today we will learn about deciduous trees, why they have leaves, and why they fall to the ground every autumn. Hunt for your own colorful leaves and make a  special leaf craft to take home.

October 10: Migration or Hibernation?

As the days are getting shorter, animals have work to do. Do they need to migrate? Do they need to prepare for hibernation? Discover some of Connecticut’s animals and learn about their special Fall activities that help them prepare for the winter months.
