Young Naturalists – An after-school series for ages 9-13 at the Retreat Farm
Wednesdays 3:30 – 5:30pm, October 18 & November 15, $10/session

Do you know a budding naturalist looking for mentors and camaraderie? The Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center and Retreat Farm offer this series to nurture young people with a passion for all things wild. Join us to participate in citizen science research, explore natural communities, make discoveries, and learn new skills. Contact patti@beec.org for information.

October 18 – Ice and Fire
As the weather cools, plants and animals prepare for the cold season. We will look for and learn about how they are doing it. How did the first humans on this land stay warm? We’ll start a fire using friction and make some tea.

November 15 – Wings in Winter
By this November date, most of the migrating birds will have departed. We will look for and learn about those that stay behind. Learn some tips for identifying birds and some things that can be learned by watching them closely.Winter is a challenging season, and we can help! After our outdoor explorations, we will prepare nutritious winter food for the birds, and make bird feeders to take home.
