March Sit & Stroll: Cancelled

This program has been cancelled.

Stellaluna by Janell Cannon

March 1, 2024 | 9:00 – 10:00 am 

 We will have time to discuss the parts of bats, their importance in the world and local ecosystems, as well as how they are similar yet different to birds. Stellaluna the bat was raised by birds, and while they had many similar qualities, there were some that made Stellaluna question herself and her differences.

Once we are done with our indoor activities we will head outside for a short nature hike where we will look and listen for birds, as well as play a bat echolocation game!

Sit & Stroll Nature series is for children 2+ years old and an adult to explore nature in fun, hands-on ways! Each month we will connect to a new theme through stories, activities and outdoor exploration at the preserve!

Each child must attend with an adult (at no extra charge). Siblings two and under are free to attend with an older sibling.

This program requires pre-registration and pre-payment. Registration must occur one week prior to the event. If the event has an attendance of 15 or fewer, the event will be cancelled for that month. You will receive a reminder email the week of programming with more details.

If you registered for a program and cannot attend, you may donate your ticket fee or use the ticket for another session (must be discussed with naturalist prior).
