Wild Things to be discovered this weekend

February 19, 2014 by  

“Wonder Where the Wild Things Are?” is part of the Watershed Nature Center’s Discovery Days program and offers people the opportunity to visit nature and learn about where the wild creatures hide during the winter months. The Nature Center may have used poster printing and flyer printing to promote this educational event to parent and children in this community and the area.

Even during the cold winter days, it is the perfect opportunity to get out and learn about the wildlife in the area. This event is open-house style and is open to the public, with registration only required for groups of more than 10 people.

During this discovery day, people will learn all about the habits of the animals during the winter months. They will discover where the turtles go, what it feels like to live in a den, and how ducks keep themselves warm. There will be a puppet show, a pop-up realistic winter scene made from recycled materials, a kids’ touch table with animal fur, some microscope investigation, and a walk outside following animal tracks.

Admission to this Discovery Day event is free to all. It takes place on Saturday, February 22, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Watershed Nature Center located at 1591 Tower Avenue in Edwardsville, Illinois. To learn more about this educational program, please visit the Watershed Nature Center website or call the office at 692-7578.
