Birthday Party Program Selection:
Have you ever seen a dragonfly nymph or a water scorpion? Find out what critters live in a pond during this engaging catch-and-release discovery session. Children will learn about metamorphosis, food chains, and other pond-related information. Equipment will be supplied. Plan to get your hands dirty!
Your birthday child and friends will have a close encounter with some of the Center’s live reptiles. They may meet Corny the Corn Snake, Miss Piggy the Red-eared Slider, Rocky the Box Turtle, or other Center inhabitants. Snake skins, turtle shells, and other props will be on display for hands-on learning.
On this guided nature hike, use all of your senses to discover nature’s treasures, such as the “Bubblegum Tree” and the Orange Jelly Fungus. In less than a mile, children will be introduced to many wonders of nature in northwestern CT. An easy (though not stroller-accessible) trail leaves right from the Party Room.
