‘Take To The Sky’ Event Planned Saturday At Audubon

Parents and children ages 3 to 8 are invited to “Take to the Sky” at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday, July 13, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

When most people think of animals that hunt, they usually think of coyotes and foxes, but have they ever thought of birds?

This month Little Explorers will learn all about the different types of birds of prey, like hawks and eagles, and how they use their adaptations to hunt. After a lesson inside, the group will head outdoors to look for birds of prey and take a behind-the-scenes tour of Audubon’s Bald Eagle enclosure. The program includes a snack and, if time and weather allow, a craft.

Little Explorers takes place rain or shine, so those attending should be sure to dress for the weather.

The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by today by calling 569-2345 during business hours or going to auduboncnc.org/programs and clicking “Current Schedule.”

Little Explorers is presented on the second Saturday of every month from 10-11:30 a.m. at Audubon.

Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.
