About this Event:
Come join in the fun of exploring! We will learn about nature and science through activities such as hiking, singing, games, reading and making crafts. For preschoolers ages 3-5, accompanied by an adult. Indoor/outdoor programs – dress for the weather.
March 10, Mixing Madness - Join us as we become mini-scientists and do some fun mixing and color experiments! See what happens when we mix some mystery liquids and powders. Make oobleck and slime and even do some color chromatography!
April 8, Down on the Farm - What would it have been like to live at Bauer Farm over 100 years ago? Would kids spend all day doing chores or would they get to have some fun? Join us as we play some games that were popular with children in early America along with making a colonial craft. Maybe we’ll even do a farm chore or two!
April 21, Dig Those Decomposers - If you like exploring and playing in the dirt, then you will love decomposers! Insects, fungi and all sorts of cool critters help turn leaves and logs into soil. Join us as we visit the Bauer forest for an up-close investigation of who is living under our feet and helping to keep the woods alive.
May 12, Incredible Insects and Amazing Arachnids - Insects and spiders can sometimes be scary pests, but there are quite a few that are actually helpful to plants, animals and people. Learn the difference between insects and spiders and explore why all these “creepy crawlers” are important. The class will include a “bug hunt” and an insect craft.
May 26, Pond Dippers - Have you ever wondered what critters live in the pond at Bauer Park? Join us for some pond dipping with nets, and you’ll have the chance to observe some freshwater creatures up close. Please wear clothes and shoes/boots that you don’t mind getting a little wet and muddy.
