Audubon Little Explorers Examine Bugs Saturday Aug. 12

August 9, 2023

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – You are invited to be among the 3 to 8-year-olds and their favorite adults who come to Audubon Community Nature Center Little Explorers to learn about “Insects and Other Invertebrates” on Saturday, Aug. 12 from 10 – 11:30 a.m.

Bugs are everywhere, but not every crawling, hopping, or flying animal without a backbone is an insect. Sometimes they are other types of invertebrates.

Participate with Little Explorers to learn more about what body parts make an animal an insect and why invertebrates are so important to plants and other animals in their habitats.

After a short indoor lesson where you discover similarities and differences among invertebrates and meet some real insects, head outside to search for these animals at different stages of their life cycles.

A snack is provided after the hike and a craft is offered if there is time.

This program takes place rain or shine, so dress for the weather.

The fee is $12 for adults, $9 for children ages 3 – 8, and Nature Center members.

Enrollment is limited to 15 children, 30 participants total.

Make required paid reservations by Thursday, Aug. 10, 2023, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or by going to and clicking through Programs and Events.
