Mighty Acorns Club: Leave, Sleep, or Bundle Up? What Plants and Animals Do When Winter Winds Begin to Blow!

Date: Friday, November 10, 2017
Time: 10:00am-11:30am
Ages: 3 to 5 years old + caregiver
Cost: $5 per child if registered in advance; Drop In: $8 per child. 
Location: Nature Museum at Grafton

The leaves are gone, nights become cold, and the chilly winds begin to blow. The first signs of winter are right at our doorstep during this time of year. For us that means getting out our winter coats, gloves, and hats! But, what changes let animals know that winter is coming? What do they do to get ready for winter and why? Learn what animals leave for winter, what animals sleep for winter, and what animals stay awake and ready for winter. Come investigate fur, feathers, and more to learn about what helps animals get through winter in northern New England.

This preschool club meets inside the museum here in Grafton and explores the outdoors on a variety of adventures to field, forest and pond throughout the 90-minute hands-on program. Children should be dressed for spending some of this time outside. 

Drops-ins are welcome! Preregistration is encouraged but is not required. We hope you will join us this Friday!
