Audubon Community Nature Center
Jamestown, N.Y. – At the July Little Explorers you and the three to eight year old child(ren) in your life can investigate the wonderful world of butterflies and moths.
“Floats Like a Butterfly” is the theme for this Audubon Community Nature Center program on Saturday, July 14, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m.
In order to survive and grow, moths and butterflies make some pretty big changes to their bodies and the way they act. After a lesson, you will head outside to catch some of these incredible insects and learn all about how they change as they move through life.
The lesson inside is followed by the outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included.
The program takes place rain or shine, so be sure 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, June 12, 2018, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
The whole family can learn about a special butterfly at Audubon’s Monarch Butterfly Festival on Saturday, August 25, 2018.
