River Buddies Weekend Explorers - Bees and Birds
Join us on a fun, exciting adventure! River Buddies Weekend Explorers takes your child on a journey like no other. As they adopt their new role of explorer, your child will go on a nature walk along the Hidden Homes Trail, sing fun and exciting songs, listen to a story about that day’s program theme, and participate in both a craft and hands on activity that are educational and fun! Your child will learn all about the local environment and animals that reside with us here at the River Center.
This trip, themed "Bees and Birds," includes:
Pollinator Power: Learn all about bees, how they pollinate, and explore the flower garden searching for some bees. Then become a bee and collect "pollen"!
Butterfly Life Cycle Necklace: Learn about the life cycle of a butterfly by reviewing the four life stages and then creating a beautiful necklace that represents each stage.
Nature Walk: Enjoy a walk on the Hidden Homes trail where you will observe different local plants and animals. You will visit and experience "larger-than-life" animal habitats and homes along the way.
Owl Pellets: Identify what an owl eats and how they hunt while observing and dissecting your very own owl pellet.
This adventure requires your child to be between the ages of 3 ½ to 6. Please note that there is a $12.00 fee per child and advanced registration with online payment is required for participation (please only select the number of CHILD participants when registering).
We will be meeting at the Picnic Area at the River Center (11605 Old Friant Rd, Fresno, CA.)
