Join us on a fun, exciting adventure! River Buddies Weekend Explorers takes your child on a journey like no other. As they adopt their new role of explorer, your child will go on a nature walk along the Hidden Homes Trail, sing fun and exciting songs, listen to a story about that day’s program theme, and participate in both a craft and hands on activity that are educational and fun! Your child will learn all about the local environment and animals that reside with us here at the River Center.
This trip will focus on our Bird Buddies theme, including:
- Hidden Homes Nature Trail Hike: practice observing and identifying real birds on the pond at the center of the trail and visit larger than life bird habitats.
- Bird Mask Craft: participants make their own bird mask to take home.
- Bird Beak Buffet: learn about bird beak adaptations by mimicking feeding habits of different bird species.
- Story Time: visit the 'bird room' in the historic 1880s Ranch House to listen to a story and interact with real bird nests.
