Junior Naturalists - Spring

Harris Hawk

Monday, January 20, 2020 | 4:00pm - 5:00pm

The Junior Naturalist Program includes activities for age groups 5 to 8 and 9 to 13. Dan Bieker as always leads the younger group with much able assistance from his team of volunteers. The younger group will explore the fields, forests and streams of the Ivy Creek Natural Area while learning about the native plants and wildlife of our area (including snakes, spiders and bats!). Steve Pullinger and Deborah Andersen will guide the older group in regular hikes with creek study, wildlife and habitat exploration, games to learn environmental concepts, an introduction to primitive skills such as shelters and water / food sourcing, and nature-based art and service projects. All activities will be conducted outdoors unless severe weather moves us inside for hands-on workshop activities or related videos. Everything starts January 20 at 4:00 pm at the Education Building, and continues every two weeks through May 4.

Pre-registration is required. To register for the younger group contact Dan Bieker at danbieker @ gmail.com or 434-971-9618.

Register for the older group by contacting Deborah Andersen at dandersen64 @ gmail.com or Steve Pullinger at hyker19 @ gmail.com.
