Animal Rescue

Pre-School3 year olds

Pre-School4 year olds
Children will hike to the creek, stopping along the way to learn about lichen, habitats, leaf litter, birds, plants, and animals. They will cross the 36 foot swinging bridge, catch insects on the spillway by the lake, learn about beavers and examine a beaver stick. Activities at The Lakeside Amphitheater includes how animals use their senses of smell and hearing, how owls move their heads, and how we use our peripheral vision. Children will make a pinecone bird feeder at The Learning Shed.
