Little Explorers Learn about Surviving Summer at Audubon, Saturday, July 8

Jamestown, NY – “Surviving Summer” is the theme for Audubon Community Nature Center’s next Little Explorers.

You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn how plants and animals survive the summer heat on Saturday, July 8, at this 10-11:30 a.m. program.

Heat and dryness can be difficult to deal with, so plants and animals must find different ways to survive the summer months.

Imagine not having air conditioning or the ability to wear fewer clothes. Foxes can’t take off their fur, so how do they stay cool? Do frogs get sunburned?

You will discover how animals cope with the heat by rolling in the mud, jumping in the pond, and burying deep into the soil. You will investigate how plants preserve their water on dry hot days.

After a lesson inside, the group heads out for a hike and lesson outdoors, returning inside for a snack and, if time allows, a craft.

The program runs rain or shine, and going outdoors is the most important part, so come dressed for the weather.

The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children.  Reservations are required by Thursday, July 6, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.

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 at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 or visit auduboncnc.org.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
