In this hands-on program, children will discover the tiny “secrets” that inhabit a pond and help our friends (the turtles, frogs, ducks, and fish) to not just survive but thrive! We will use magnifiers and microscopes to view the secrets that are too small for our unaided eye to see. We’ll discover the strange ways pond “secrets” breathe, catch their food, and hide from danger as we look for spinning balls of algae, dragonfly young, cousins of crabs, bubble-carrying beetles, and, with luck, tadpoles. Please dress to get wet or muddy!

Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
