April 4, 5, 6  from 9am-12pm

This is a program for children currently in kindergarten through third grade

Members only.  $30 per child/per day 

We will provide a morning snack.  Children should bring a water bottle. 

PLEASE- No phones, electronics or other toys from home.

April 4th - Metamorphosis: As spring starts, soon too will the life cycles of animals like frogs, toads, and insects. These animals all go through a change called metamorphosis and we are going to explore every part of it. We’ll meet our metamorphosis animals that call Tanglewood home and go inspect the vernal pools for frog, toad, and salamander eggs. We will also create a metamorphosis craft.

April 5th - Feathers and Fluff: Join us for a session all about what animals are covered in. We will meet animals like chinchillas, bunnies, hawks, and owls, while talking about what covers their skin. We will go outside to look for feathers and fuzzy friends on the trail, as well as play some games, and explore in our museum. There might even be a chance to take your own furry or feather friend home (no care required!). 

April 6th - Eggstravaganza! Animals that Hatch: Have you ever wondered what animals hatch from eggs? Well this session is just for you! We’ll meet animals like birds, reptiles, and insects that hatch from eggs. We will also do experiments, like an egg drop, to understand eggs, their shells, and how strong they are.  We’ll finish off our day with our very own egg hunt here at Tanglewood to finish off the session. This is sure to be an “Egg-cellent” session!
