An interactive pre-S.T.E.A.M. investigation about why the arrival of autumn causes such special changes for both young children and local woodland animals.
Preschool children will be introduced to the basic concepts of adaption (stay), hibernation (sleep), and migration (leave) of six local woodland animals.
This presentation includes a visit with Forest Ranger Karen to meet our six woodland animal friends, and an interactive "blubber glove" experiment to illustrate how hibernation works. Fun, hands-on storyboard and game activities explain why our woodland friends make the fall choices they do. This lively program continues with a "cozy" woodland singalong, a Goin' on a Skunk Hunt excursion, and the creation of an edible craft for our feathered friends that "stay". Space is limited to 15 children per session. All participants receive take-home goodie bags. Please call 845-359-4595 to register.
