“Wild Wings”

(choice of 2 weeks/pick one from below)

June 12 – 16 or June 19 – 23

Did you know that many of our winged insects start their lives in the water?  Or that bats can eat up to 600 insects an hour!?  This June, come learn about the amazing winged wonders of Ohio - the critters who fly to survive.  We will encounter hawks and owls, dissect owl pellets, learn about mysterious bats, search for insects in the meadow, go creek stomping, and so much more!


“Wildlife Mysteries”

(choice of 2 weeks/pick one from below)

July 10 – 14 or July 31 – August 4

They are sneaky and stealthy and always have a few tricks up their sleeves; they are Ohio’s mysterious wildlife.  Join us as we hike the woods in search of animals hiding with camouflage, capture insects that can transform through metamorphosis, meet wildlife with senses much better than our own, and wade through the creek full of amazing creatures. These activities, will help us understand the mysterious ways animals survive in the wild.
