Junior Ranger Program

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


If we look closely, we can see that the forest isn’t just a bunch of trees. It’s also a neighborhood for many animals and insects. 

Join us for this month’s Junior Ranger Program, where we will explore the master builders of the woodlands. We’ll search for woodrat dens, delicate turret spider homes, and bird nests. We’ll also examine the building materials that animals use to make their homes at China Camp. Then we’ll use natural objects, such as leaves, twigs, and moss, to create our own miniature nature homes. This program will be guided by Suzanne Mirviss and Paula O’Connell, who have both been longtime school teachers. 


Date: Saturday, September 11

Time: 10 a.m. – noon
