Little Explorers Learn about Squirrels at Audubon, Saturday, November 11

Little Explorers Learn about Squirrels at Audubon, Saturday, November 11

Jamestown, NY – Squirrels in this region come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

On Saturday, November 11, 10-11:30 a.m., you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about squirrels through artifacts, stories, and a walk outside.

You will learn what squirrels live here, how they are similar and different, and go outside to look for some of them or signs of where they have been.

The biggest squirrels in the region usually live underground and the smallest ones soar through the treetops. Though related, squirrels have different adaptations to help them survive. Some hibernate for the winter, while others stay active through the cold months. Squirrels eat everything from nuts to frogs. Learn all this and more when you attend the program. 

After a lesson inside, the group will head for a hike outdoors, returning indoors for a snack and, if there is time, a craft.
