Kid’s Nature Night – Absurd Adaptations

September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Kids’ Nature Night is back for a whole new season! Join our Education Coordinator, Sena, for this first program in the series that is all about the amazingly weird and seemingly absurd adaptations that some plants and animals have to survive. We’ll start our evening off by cooking dinner over a campfire, and then dive into the awesome world of exploding ants, disgusting disguises, masters of camouflage, zombie fungi, killer plants, and gulping eyeballs! We’ll take a short hike, play animal adaptation games, complete some fun activities, and see some amazing adaptations in action by feeding our resident snake.

This is a drop-off program, open to children ages 5-12. We will be outside at least half of the evening, so please dress your child(ren) accordingly. Dinner consists of hotdogs or veggie dogs with all the fixings, juice, and s’mores for dessert. Please feel free to send your child with an alternate dinner and/or dessert from home if you would prefer. $25/child for non-members; $20/child for members. Please email us at gro.w1568622069olloh1568622069taerg1568622069@ofni1568622069 to register.
