Freaky Forest Finds
Thursday, November 1, and Friday, November 9, 2012.
Students will take magnifiers, measuring tape, and other equipment, to look under logs, at trunks of trees, and high in the tree tops to find what freaky critters live in different parts of the forest, investigating if the forest changes from one area to another.

Mysterious Meadows
Friday, November 2, and Thursday, November 8.
Spiders, insects, tracks of mice–what else can one find in a field? With bug boxes in hand, children will explore different field habitats and compare how they are the same and how they are different.

Nature in Winter

Come for a scavenger hunt to learn about different animals; then investigate clues of wildlife by exploring different habitats on a winter hike.
