Program Leader: Paul King III, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
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 dragonfly young, cousins of crabs, bubble-carrying beetles, and, with luck, tadpoles. Please dress to get wet or muddy! This program is for children age 8 and older
There is a $10 fee for Adults and $7 fee for children for this program. Members are free.
