Mighty Naturalist Program; How Animals Survive in Winter Time

January 22 @ 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM

How Animals Survive in Winter Time Program is for ages 1-5 years old with a caregiver.

Program Description:  What are some actions nature takes and why to survive winter?  We will explore and learn about hibernation, migration and adaption.  Monarchs fly to Mexico, Groundhog goes to bed, and Weasel changes his wardrobe!  Find out how other animals cope with winter’s worst weather.  We will spend time outdoors seeking clues before heading into the classroom for stories, hands-on activities and craft time.

Fee: $8 per child ($5 Dahlem member); free for adult & children under 1 year old.  Advanced Registration Required. Please register below or call Dahlem at 517-782-3453 to reserve and pay for your spot for you and your mighty naturalist. Payment due upon registration.

Share your love of nature with your young child(ren). We will explore and play with nature while developing critical early childhood skills and growing self-confidence. The Mighty Naturalist Programs are geared toward children 5 years and younger with an adult caregiver to learn about animals, winter survival, birds, tracks, and more. Each program offers a different theme and activities to give you and your mighty naturalist many program opportunities. Invite your friends to sign up, too.
