A Nature Program for Preschoolers The Nature Museum at Grafton

How do animals find food in the snow? The Nature Museum is pleased to announce "Winter Animal Wonders: How Animals Survive the Winter," a hands-on nature program for preschoolers on Friday, January 12th from 10 to 11:30 AM. We will start indoors with a story, and we'll touch and observe different animal artifacts to learn more about winter adaptations. Afterwards, the class will bundle up and head outside to move our bodies, explore, and learn more about animals in winter. Drops-ins are always welcome! The drop-in cost for Mighty Acorns Club is $8 per child. To save money, The Nature Museum encourages participants to pre-register online for $5 per child. Registration can be completed at Caregivers attend for free. Snowshoes are required for this program. A limited number of child and adult sized snowshoes are available to loan to participants.
