Mighty Acorns: Fantastic Fall Changes - Colorful Leaves and More!

Fall is a time of change in Northern New England. There are so many new colors, smells, and even tastes! Leaves are changing, apples are ready to be picked, pumpkins are big and orange, days become shorter, nights become cool and crisp, and animals are preparing for winter. Come learn about why fall is a special time for the many plants, animals, and humans who call Northern New England home. Try some apple cider, learn about what fall means for critters and plants, and go on a nature scavenger hunt to see fall with new eyes!

Ages: 3 to 6 years old + caregiver

All Mighty Acorns Club programs are on the first Friday of the month from 10:00AM - 11:30AM. Programs begin in October and end in May, and are geared for ages 3 - 5.

Mighty Acorns Club will happen rain or shine! Make sure you and your mighty acorn(s) are ready for whatever the weather has in store for us! If there are unsafe weather conditions (e.g. thunder/lightning, high winds, extreme cold, etc.), we will have an alternative indoor activity. If there is hazardous weather for traveling, The Nature Museum’s closure due to weather follows the decision of Grafton Elementary School. Please check local listings for Grafton Elementary School to see if they’re closed.
