Your child has the day off of school, now what? Bring them to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC) for a day full of adventure and learning! On Friday, February 24, ALNC will offer two Vacation Day sessions appropriate for ages 5-12 and a special lunch bunch option to keep your youngster engaged all day long.
Phenology is Phun! Aldo Leopold once wrote, “The months of the year, from January up to June are a geometric progression in the abundance of distractions.” We’ll learn all about seasonal changes, what to expect, and how to record and track our observations. Participants will leave with their own phenology list of things to look for and record as spring approaches. We’ll have many adventures as we trample the trails with magnifying lenses, binoculars and notebooks, in search of spring robins and even try to predict the “ice-out” day on ALNC’s pond.
ALNC Members: $18/participant; Non-Members: $21/participant. Add Lunch Bunch – just $6 for ALNC Members and $7 for Non-Members.
