Exploration Station Is In Full Swing

The Exploration Station’s hours are Saturday hours are from 10:00 – 12:00 and Sunday the hours are 1:30 – 3:30.  The Exploration Station is open on most school holidays from 10:00 – 12:00.

The September topic is “Seasonal Changes.” Learn why some leaves change colors in the fall and others stay green.  Activities include leaf and seed identification that you can incorporate into your daily walks.

The October topic is “Go Batty for Bats.”  Bats account for nearly a quarter of the mammal species on earth.  Besides being the only mammal capable of true flight, they are also natural pest controllers.  With all these good traits, they are often misunderstood for being one of the bad guys in the animal world.  We will look at the positive role bats play in the environment and how we can conserve and protect their population.

Hope to see you there.
