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.
