Winter Wonderland

You might be surrounded by it every winter, but have you ever taken a closer look at the snow?

Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers will learn more about how it is formed, and its unique structure from the smallest snowflake to the largest snowbank.

You and the three-to-eight-year-old child(ren) in your life are invited to this “Winter Wonderland” experience on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Delve deeper with some snow experiments and a lesson indoors and then delve right into the snowbanks themselves outside to look closely at individual snowflakes and tunnel down through the snow layers. A snack is provided after the hike and a craft is offered if there is time.

Little Explorers takes place regardless of the weather, so be sure to dress for whatever it is.

The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, January 9, 2020, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking on “Current Schedule.”

Little Explorers is presented on the second Saturday of every month, 10-11:30 a.m. at Audubon.

Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren.
