Audubon Little Explorers learn ‘All About Evergreens’ on Saturday
Jamestown — Humans use beautiful evergreen trees to decorate their homes for the holidays. Do other animals use them, too?
You and the 3- to 8-year-old children can find out at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday from 10-11:30 a.m.
This month, Little Explorers will learn all about evergreen trees, how they are used by the animals, and why they are green all year.
After learning all about different types of evergreens and their importance to winter wildlife, you will take walk outside to find these cozy trees and investigate how animals use them.
The program includes a lesson followed by outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included.
The program takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.
The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday and can be made by calling 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
