Second Saturday Family Science

with Emily Schuttenberg

Ages 5–7 or Grades K–1

Saturdays, 10–11am

April 8, May 13, June 10

Suggested Donation: $5–$30 per family

Join us for seasonal nature and science programs each second Saturday of the month.

Designed for children (ages 5–7) with their parents, these programs will explore cool topics in nature.

We will be learning while moving, often exploring the woods behind our building.

April 8: Vernal Pools

Also called “ephemeral pools” these Spring habitats are teeming with life and only around for part of the year!

As the world thaws, come explore the life of these unique and beautiful places.

May 13: Pollinators

Everything around us is beautiful and blooming!

Come learn about the animals who make the incredible colors and delicious scents (and, of course, the fruits and vegetables we eat) possible!

June 10: Poisonous or Venomous

What’s the difference between poisonous and venomous?

Where do these toxins come from?

How do plants and animals use their toxins?

In this Saturday Science we will explore the answers to these questions with hands-on activities, games, and nature exploration.
