Polliwogs Weekly Programs at Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center
May 1, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Wednesday, repeating until June 5, 2019
Polliwogs Weekly Program Resumes! A fun group for the littlest explorers among us! Join us Wednesday mornings 10:30 – 12 and bring along your favorite grown-up to explore the forests, fields and gardens around Prescott Farm.
May 1st – Bright New Beginnings: Deer fawn, fox kits, bear cubs, and many young mammals are seeing the world for the first time. What are they seeing? Search for signs of spring, just like a fawn, kit, or cub, while we explore Prescott Farm.
May 8th – Forest Floor: The soft, spongy forest floor is home to salamanders, worms, and many other critters. Join us to explore this rich part of the ecosystem, and go home with your very own terrarium that will mimic the layers where plants and animals thrive.
May 15th – Bumbling Bees: As flowers bloom throughout the spring, pollinators are hard at work. We will learn all about bees, birds, and other pollinators and the flowers they visit.
May 22nd – The Terrific Turtle: Meet everyone’s favorite three-toed box turtle – Bucky! The warmer months mean she can spend time outside basking in the sun. Our friendly and curious resident reptile will love the updates we make to her “summer home” while learning about her natural habitat.
May 28th – Birds are Back!: Blue birds, tree swallows, robins, and warblers have returned to our backyards. Pick up a pair of binoculars to look for nests, eggs, and other signs of our feathered friends.
June 5th – Out to the Pond: Come take a hike to the pond! We will grab ponding nets and look for the critters big and small that call this shallow water home. Note: please wear shoes you do not mind getting mucky.
