Wee Naturalist program to focus on signs of fall

By Staff | Oct 1, 2012

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s October Wee Naturalists program for preschoolers will be entitled “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf.” It will focus on changing leaf colors and other signs of fall.

The program will be held at the Society’s Yankauer Nature Preserve on Whiting’s Neck in northeastern Berkeley County. Two sessions will be offered: one on Monday, the Oct. 15 and another on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Each session will last from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

The Wee Naturalists program is designed to provide regular monthly opportunities for children ages 3-5 to explore nature together safely under the guidance of an experienced PVAS instructor. At each session, children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent, other adult relative or guardian.

To ensure that everyone receives close, personal attention, enrollment is limited and pre-registration is required. Easy on-line registration is available on the Society’s website at www.potomacaudubon.org. The fee is $5 per child/adult team per session.

The program is led by Suzi Taylor, of Sharpsburg, Md., a veteran Audubon camp director who has a degree in environmental education.

For more information, contact Taylor at 301-432-1908 or tomandsuzi506@cs.com.

The Wee Naturalists program was established in 2009 with support from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation’s Two Rivers Giving Circle.
