Audubon Little Explorers will have a Fall Frolic on Saturday, Oct. 13

Photos submitted to Times Observer Fall Frolic is the theme for Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday morning, October 13. Through an indoor lesson and a walk outside, children ages three to eight and their favorite grownups will learn about the big changes that come with the new fall season.

A new season means that big changes are coming to Audubon Community Nature Center.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn all about these amazing changes and have a Fall Frolic at Little Explorers.

Every fall leaves change colors, fall flowers and seeds appear, and animals start to prepare for winter. This month Little Explorers will learn all about autumn, and then head outside to explore the season at Audubon.

The program includes an indoor lesson followed by outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included.

The program takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.

The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children.

Reservations are required by Thursday, Oct. 11, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
