Friday, October 12, 2016, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Blue Heron Nature Preserve/Atlanta Audubon Society, 4055 Roswell Road, Atlanta, 30342
October Theme: Butterflies, Roly-Polys, and Snails Galore!
Homeschool program for ages 4 to 12. Students will go on an invertebrate scavenger hunt, and learn how to use butterfly nets to catch and release winged insects. After reviewing our rock and log turning skills, we'll see what we can find crawling on the ground. Weather permitting, we will search in our creek for various invertebrates that live in this habitat. Our adventure will teach us about how to create and maintain a terrarium habitat for some of our invertebrate find, a great way to observe and learn about the behaviors and habits of these often hidden animals. Each child will contribute to the creation of a terrarium at Blue Heron, and get the starting materials for creating their own at home. $12/child for advance registrations and $15/child for registrations on the day of event. Online registration is available at http://bhnp.org/homeschool-activities.html.
