Explorers Learn About Leaves

Little Explorers is designed for adults and their 3- to 8-year-old children.

“Falling Leaves” will teach more about leaves, their different colors and what makes them so important in nature. The group might investigate holes in them, compare shapes and sizes and notice which leaves turn colors and which don’t. After a short indoor lesson, those attending will go outside to see how many different leaves are falling around Audubon and collect some to make a craft.  A snack is provided after the outdoor exploration.

This program takes place rain, snow or shine, so dress for the weather. The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for children ages 3 to 8 and Nature Center members.  Enrollment is limited to 15 children, 30 participants total. Make reservations by Thursday, October 6, by calling 716-569-2345 during business hours or by going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through “Upcoming Programs.” For ACNC’s most up-to-date COVID-19 requirements, read the COVID-19 Notice at the top of the page at AudubonCNC.org.
