EXPLORE! Log Sweet Log

July 18 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

Get up close with nature as you explore life on, in, and under logs in the forest. Hands, magnifiers, and our senses are all used to explore how this “forest trash” is really a forest treasure.

Participants will investigate what makes fallen trees so important to so many forms of life in the forest, including living trees and soon-to-be trees (seeds)! Students will use a microscope to look at things they find on their hike!

This is the fifth in our series of six outdoor adventure programs in June and July. 

Designed for kids in grades K to 5, EXPLORE! programs will run on six Thursdays, June 13, 20, 27, and July 11, 18, 25 [no session on July 4].

All program activities are outside, and each week features a different theme. Taught by educators from Buttonwood Nature Center, home of The Institute, programs include educational activities related to the season and theme. Students may attend any or all sessions.

Register HERE.
