Mighty Naturalist Program; Our Feathered Friends
January 15 @ 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
Our Feathered Friends Program is for ages 1-5 years old with a caregiver.
Program Description: What is unique about birds, and what do their characteristics (feathers, feet, beak, color, etc.) tell us about their life? We will read a bird-themed story, look at bird mounts, take a short birding hike to observe our local birds in action, then return indoors for hands-on ‘beak’ activities, and make a small bird feeder to take home. Join us, and help feed the birds!
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.
