Little Explorers Set to Investigate Fur, Feathers, and Scales on Nov. 11

November 3, 2023

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Animals have coverings on their bodies to help them survive. They might have fur to keep them warm in the winter, shells to protect them from predators, or many other coverings.

You and your 3 to 8-year-old(s) are invited to join the Little Explorers and their favorite adults to learn about “Fur, Feathers and Scales” on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 10–11:30 a.m., at Audubon Community Nature Center.

Little Explorers will investigate and compare some of the things animals have on the outside of their bodies and learn how each adaptation helps different animals find food and survive predators or the climate.

The program begins indoors with a hands-on exploration of different animal coverings such as fur, feathers, and shells. After visiting some of Audubon’s animal ambassadors to figure out how their coverings help them, everyone will head outdoors to look for animals in the wild.

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

Little Explorers takes place regardless of the weather, so dress accordingly.

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, Nov. 9, 2023, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or by going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through Programs and Events.
