January 27 - The Wonder of Winter Birds-
Ever wonder how birs survive in the winter, where they come from or go? Why
they are so big or small? We will observe our bird haven feeder station and
maybe a short hike to find as many different birds as we can and talk about
their ability to survive in the winter cold, which ones stay in NY and if not
where do they go? Each child will get to take home a pinecone bird feeder.

March 8 - Mammals -We will take a journey
through the woods to find traces of mammals...Deer, fox & squirrel are just
a few fury creatures that are lurking through the woods. This afternoon will be
filled with mammal games, crafts and the mammals that live in the Weinberg
Trailside Museum.

is that sea shell? What do horseshoe crabs look like? What is a seastar?
