All mammals have fur or hair, but do you know what else they have?
On Saturday, January 13, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m., you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn more about mammal traits, and about yourselves, at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers.
Scientists categorize living things into groups based on shared traits. Mammals have a few things that make them unique, and you will learn about them in this program. Fur and hair are the most obvious, and an in-depth investigation of this adaptation will teach you more, especially how it helps in winter.
You might even get to learn about some mammals that don’t follow the rules.
After a lesson inside, the group heads outdoors for a hike and to search for live mammals or signs that they have visited. On the return indoors there will be a snack and, if time allows, a craft.
Remember to dress for the weather.
The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, January 11, 2018, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
