Jamestown, N.Y. – At Little Explorers you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about seeds, their shapes and sizes, and go for a spring seed hunt outside to find some that have sprouted or are about to.
“A Seed is Sleepy” is the theme for this Audubon Community Nature Center program on Saturday, April 14, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m. Seeds are sleepy, but only until the time is right and they have found the right spot. Then seeds burst forth and grow. In this program you learn about seeds and how they find those spots, what they have and need to get them started, and what their lives might be like after they germinate.
Unless the weather is particularly severe, after the indoor lesson and exploration, a walk outdoors reveals sprouts and shoots and seeds still waiting. Returning inside, everyone gathers for a snack and, if time allows, a craft. The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, April 12, 2018, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
