We love the Calvin EcoPreserve First Saturday programs! Heading out to a nature program might not seem like a ‘holiday’ thing to do; but since Calvin is a Christian college they always manage to talk about God’s creation during the programs.
The December 3 program is“First Snow in the Woods” from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. You’ll learn how animals survive the winter; what birds stay around when it starts to snow, what are the adaptations that the White tailed deer has to help it survive the coldest time of year and more!
They’ll read the story The First Snow in the Woods and families will observe winter birds, get hands-on experience with deer artifacts, create a bird feeder for their own backyards, and spend time outside looking for animal signs.
