Junior Audubon Activities — Winter/Spring 2018

Junior Audubon is sponsored by the Litchfield Hills Audubon Society and is offered at no cost to participants.  For more information and updates visit www.lhasct.org or contact Donna Rose Smith at LHASjunior @gmail.com or Phone: 203.706.0474

Children of all ages and their parents have enjoyed Junior Audubon activities, but we keep in mind children in grades 2 through 5 as we plan events.

Whether it is snowy or muddy, animals leave tracks and signs. Search around the feeders and pond at Boyd Woods to see who has been there. Bring your phone to take photos and enter your finds into the iNaturalist online database. Practice walking like your favorite animal.

Meet at the Boyd Woods Sanctuary parking area on Route 254 in Litchfield.

 

Animal Tracks and Signs

March 4, Sunday, 1-2:30 p.m. (Rain Date: March 25)

Vernal Pools

April 22, Sunday, 1-2:30 p.m. (Rain date: April 29)

Vernal pools are wetland wonderlands full of amazing species of frogs, toads, salamanders, egg masses, beetles, bugs, assorted birds, and possibly even a snake or turtle. Put on your water boots and get ready to get a bit wet and dirty while we discover the wonders of vernal pools with naturalist Donna Rose Smith.
