Catching Wildlife - June 4, 13 & July 10, 25
Catching animals is tough. They often move quickly, some are slippery, and
some are even dangerous. Fortunately, technology can make catching wildlife
simple, safe, and fun while providing us with new ways of understanding our wild
We'll learn how to 'catch' wildlife using game cameras, footprint traps, audio
recorders, and even smart phones. Don't worry - we'll try our hand at catching
wildlife with good ole nets as well.
The Bones Eaters - June 11, 20 & July 17, 30
Vultures, coyotes, skunks, opossums, raccoons, and ants prowl
the land and peer from overhead in search of the the dead.
These are just a few of the animals whose existence is
spent completing the Circle of Life.
Join us as we explore the signs, habitats, and astounding
resourcefulness of nature's original recyclers. We will send
explorers home with a decomposition demonstration.
The Wet Wild! - June 18, 25 & July 24, 31
From flowers that eat micro-animals, to rodents that weigh 50
pounds, to birds that build floating nests - the prairie's wetlands are a place where
being extraordinary is just a part of survival.
Come explore our newest wetland, fishing net in hand, as we reveal the wild
and watery ways of frogs, insects, and birds. You'll even have a chance to
build your very own minnow trap to use along a creek, bayou, or lake near you!
