Signs of Summer – Wednesday, July 10; 10:30-12:00
The forest and fields are alive with buzzing, chirping, and crunching. In our first Polliwogs meeting of the summer, we will see, smell, touch, and listen for signs of the season.
Life on the Farm – Wednesday, July 17; 10:30-12:00
Imagine life at Prescott Farm when this land was still a farm. What animals lived here? What equipment did farmers use? Through games and crafts we will journey back in time.
Insect Investigation – Wednesday, July 24; 10:30-12:00
It is no secret that bugs abound in summer. We spend a lot of time swatting them away, but these tiny critters play a big role in nature. From butterflies to ants and caterpillars to beetles, join us to explore buggy superpowers.
Dusk Defenders – Wednesdays, July 31; 10:30-12:00
Nature is all about balance. As the sun goes down, bats emerge overhead as insect eating machines. These flying mammals eat about half of their weight in insects each night! We will explore how bats accomplish this amazing feat.
Monarchs and Milkweed – Wednesday, August 7; 10:30-12:00
Monarch butterflies have completed their long journey from Mexico. We will find evidence that they are back by investigating the Monarch’s favorite plant— milkweed— for eggs, caterpillars, and chrysalises. We might even glimpse this beautiful butterfly!
The Learning Garden – Wednesday, August 14; 10:30-12:00
Explore the colors of the Learning Garden, and then get ready to eat the rainbow! We will harvest, taste, and prepare a few simple recipes fresh from the garden.
