Little Explorers can learn about camouflage
Whether a winter day is a snow-covered wonderland or bare and brown, animals have ways to keep out of sight. The blending into their surroundings that many animals do is known as camouflage.
Adults and the 3-8 year old child(ren) in their life can learn about “Camouflage” at Audubon Community Nature Center’s (ACNC) Little Explorers, Saturday, Feb. 13, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Both predators and prey animals use camouflage as an important survival tool, whether they are matching the colors and patterns of their surroundings or mimicking other plants or animals.
After a short indoor lesson learning how and why animals use different types of camouflage, those attending will head outside to look for examples and test their camouflage skills in the forests and fields.
A craft is offered if there is time.
Be sure to dress for the weather and have a required face covering available for when the group cannot maintain physical distance.
The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for children and Nature Center members. Make reservations by Thursday, Feb. 11, by calling 569-2345 during business hours or by going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking on “Register for a Program.”
The Little Explorers series is sponsored by Univera Healthcare. Little Explorers is presented on the second Saturday of every month from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
