Citizen science is any project where volunteers partner with scientists to answer real-world questions. Join us as we create our own bird feeder and discover how you can participate in Project FeederWatch this winter. For this citizen science project you don't have to go farther than your own backyard to contribute!
Give your toddler a fun and interactive introduction to nature in our Mommy & Me classes! Each month we will focus on a different topic and will feature live animal encounters, stories, crafts and nature exploration.
Saturday, November 16 - Monthly Dog Walk
When: 10 – 11 a.m.
Where: Turkey Foot Nature Park, 4795 Turkeyfoot Avenue
Autumn is coming to a close. You and your dog are invited to join us as we enjoy the sights and smells of a late autumn day. Shuffle through the fallen leaves in Turkey Foot Nature Park as we catch beautiful views of Eagle Creek.
Join us in the field at Elm Street Green Park as we explore native wildflowers and seeds. Dress to get a little dirty, as we make fun seed balls using native seeds and soil. Then help “bomb” the meadow with seed bombs the nature center staff prepared ahead.
Explore the clues animals leave behind. We’ll take a walk through the woods and search for animal signs. Tracks, feathers, bones, nut shells, scat…they all help us discover who went by. This is a great program for scouts.
Saturday, November 30 - Drop-in Discovery
When: 10 a.m. - Noon
Where: Zion Nature Center, 690 Beech Street
Family in town for the holiday weekend, and looking for something to do? Need a break from all the holiday sales and shopping? Stop in to the Zion Nature Center for a chance to relax, explore and discover. There will be opportunities to meet some of the nature center animals, a holiday craft and refreshments.
