Children ages 5 – 10 can join us just before Bird Week to celebrate birds, bats, and insects! Grab your binoculars and get ready to hone your observation skills.

This Preschool Wonder Walk will take a close look at bird nests & discover how they're made. On our Garden walk, we'll look and listen for nesting birds, and explore the life cycle of a bird from cozy egg, to chirping hatchling, to the day they finally stretch their wings and fly! We'll read together, play together and create a take-home art activity.
This is your chance for a meet and greet with some of nature's most beautiful birds, offered through the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L).

Photo ops are available (no flash please).
