The Audubon Community Nature Center will host its next Little Explorers session on Saturday, Feb. 10, focused on backyard birds.

Little Explorers is held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. for children ages 3-8 and a parent or guardian. After an indoor lesson including hands-on explorations such as real bird artifacts, stories, and games, Little Explorers and their adults will grab some binoculars and head outside to explore the birds in Audubon’s backyard.

A snack is provided after the hike and a craft is offered if there is time. Little Explorers takes place regardless of the weather, so dress accordingly. The fee is $12 for adults, $9 for children ages 3-8 and Nature Center members.
