Dates and themes:

June 15-19: Naturalists in Training
How do naturalists explore their surroundings? What tools do scientists use to study nature? Wonder will abound this week as we take in all that Gilsland Farm has to offer. 

June 29-July 3: Bugs!
Whether they have six legs, eight legs, or no legs at all, this week is all about the creatures we call “bugs!” We’ll look high, low (and even underwater) for bugs to observe, and will learn about the important ecological roles they play in the habitats around us. 

July 13-17: Growing Like Me
What do caterpillars and tadpoles have in common? How can you tell how old a turtle is? We’ll explore many habitats this week to see plant and animal life cycles in action!

August 3-7: Things with Wings
Have you ever wished you could fly? This week we will turn our attention skyward for a closer look at birds, bats, butterflies, bees, and moths! 

August 17-21: Animal Families
What is life like for a piping plover chick? How many sisters does a honeybee have? This week we’ll learn that animal families come in all shapes and sizes!
