Individual family groups and small “pods” are invited to become “nature detectives.” Animals leave behind evidence because of their daily (or nightly) activities. Like detectives, we can read these clues to learn more about animals’ lives. Families will investigate “crime scenes” and determine the perpetrators and motives for various “offenses.” Families/cooperative groups/“pods” can register for their own time slot. Time slots are available for one family/cooperative group/“pod” at a time (max 12 people/group).
Jennings’ Nature Detectives programs are designed for families/pods with children age 6 and older. Children should be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required by Friday, November 20 and space is limited.
