Wee Naturalists focus on winter birds

By Staff | Nov 16, 2012

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s December Wee Naturalists program for preschoolers will be entitled “Snowflakes and Snowbirds.” It will focus on the different birds that live in our forests during the winter months.

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 Dec. 3 and another on Thursday, Dec. 6. Each session will last from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 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 Ms. 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.
