Little Explorers Learn about Nighttime Animals at Audubon, Saturday, August 12

Little Explorers Learn about Nighttime Animals at Audubon, Saturday, August 12

Jamestown, NY – “Shh…look…listen…to the sounds of the dark say Goodnight!”

These words of Richard Jackson from his book All Ears All Eyes set the stage for Audubon Community Nature Center’s next Little Explorers.

You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about nighttime animals and their senses on Saturday, August 12, at this 10-11:30 a.m. program.

A brief lesson inside will be about the nighttime world. Then the group will go outdoors to look for signs of the animals not seen during the day, before returning inside for a snack and, if time allows, a craft.

Night ushers in a whole new world. A chirp and a swoosh and a chatter and a hoot. These are the sounds that fill the night woods and fields. Who makes them? Who hears them? What do they mean?

Animals that are active at night have to use their ears so much more than their eyes, as well as their sense of smell and touch.

Local Educator Discovers How to Unleash Children's Love for Nature ​

Local Educator Discovers How to Unleash Children's Love for Nature ​

Like many of us with a few years under our belt, Dave Bauer grew up in an era before video games and cellphones, when children enthusiastically played in the great outdoors until the streetlights went on. He thoroughly enjoyed exploring his natural surroundings, leaving no stone unturned and being completely intrigued by the creepy crawlers found in the soil beneath. 

Bauer’s youthful appreciation of nature led to a successful career as a teacher of environmental science and training others in creative thinking, change leadership and living sustainability. Following his retirement from the teaching profession, he turned his attention to several projects focused on reconnecting today’s youth with nature.
