Jamestown, N.Y. – At Little Explorers you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about the rainbow of colors that May brings to the world.
“Color Me” is the theme for this Audubon Community Nature Center program on Saturday, May 12, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m.
May seems like the rainbow month. The April showers have encouraged the flowers to show their colors. Birds are in bright outfits to attract mates, and the trees are even getting in on the fun.
You can learn why May is such a colorful month, go on a color scavenger hunt, and find out why some things camouflage rather than color up.
A lesson inside is followed by an outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included.
The program takes place rain or shine, so please 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, May 10, 2018, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.
