Fledglings: A Nature Experience for Children 2-5 *CANCELLED*

September 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Cedar Wood Preserve by Elanah Sherman


Children ages 2-5 (and their adults) are invited to join naturalist and educator Beth Sullivan and Avalonia Board member Elanah Sherman for a walk through the relatively flat trails at Norwich’s Cedar Wood Preserve. On this walk, we are going to use our senses to check out EVERYTHING! There is so much to see at this time of year: flowers and other plants; maybe some animals; and all sorts of insects! We will think about how everything in nature seems connected: birds and trees, bees and flowers, butterflies and milkweed. And we will think about changes the seasons might bring to them all.  After the walk, we will gather at the trailhead for a craft project: creating seed bombs.

This event is limited to 8 – 10 children. All children must be accompanied by adults. Sturdy, closed-toe shoes are required. Bug repellant is strongly recommended and will be available at the event. Rain date September 24, 10-11:30

Accessibility Note:

Parking: Off-street lot with room for about 4 cars. One space is accessible to people with disabilities. The lot is located at trailhead. Parking is also available by the side of the road.
