  • Week 1:   June 25th & June 27th                 WHO LIVES IN A TREE?                                                                                                                     Ever wonder what it would be like to live in a tree? A tree is a home for many different animals. Trees provide food and shelter for many          animals and for people. Come find out who has their own “tree house.”
  • Week 2:   July 9th & July 11th                   WHAT’S WILD?                                                                                                                                       Wild animals are called wildlife. They can take care of themselves. Animals that are not wild depend on humans to take care of them. Would you want a mountain lion for a pet? Let’s find out why that’s not a good idea!
  • Week 3:   July 16th & July 18th                   OH, DEER!                                                                                                                                                        An animal’s habitat or home is a place that has the right kind of food, water, shelter, and space for it to survive. We will learn what kind of habitat our state mammal, the white-tailed deer, needs.
  • Week 4:   July 23rd  & July 25th                   HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT                                                                                                                    Wild animals must learn to find food and avoid being eaten. They use camouflage to blend in or hide in plain sight. Do you like to play hide-n-seek? We’ll learn some expert tips from nature’s best hiders!
  • Week 5:   July 30th & Aug 1st                        FISHING FUN                                                                                                                                          Did you know that fish can breathe underwater? We’ll learn all about all the amazing things fish can do. We will play lots of fun fishing games, go fishing, and practice water safety this week.
