  AM PROGRAMS    10 - 11:30 am

Ages 5 - 7: Insect Egg-splorers
During the fall, most insects end their lifecycle but not before leaving their eggs tucked safely in plain sight. In this class, we will explore what is left behind and look to the future for what it may become.

Ages 8-10:   Hidden World of Lichen
Discover that lichen is not a plant; explore the symbiotic relationship of fungus and algae; identify lichen in nature; appreciate the role of lichen in human and animal life.

Ages 11-13: Elusive and Endangered
This class spotlights animals in Connecticut and their path to being listed as endangered species. Learn the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and, more importantly, How you can make a difference!

PM PROGRAMS     12:30 - 2 pm

Ages 5-7:   Be Bear-y Aware
Bears live in Connecticut all-year round, but what do they do for the whole year?
In this class, we will learn all about one of CT's most recognizable animals and what we can do to keep them and ourselves safe.

Ages 8-10:   Return to the Roost
As the end of winter nears and the cold weather subsides, some birds are beginning to return to Connecticut. Learn about the resources that these birds are racing back to find and the reason for the saying, "the early bird gets the worm."

Ages 11-13:  World of Mimicry
Biomimicry explores a world of problem-solving inspired by studying plants and animals. Utilizing the Nature Center's property and animals, we will develop innovative ideas using nature's adaptations to solve real-world problems!
