Can you tell a Katydid call from a Cicada's? The croak of a Bullfrog from that of a Green Frog? Have you ever called owls or listened to birds going to bed? Bring a picnic and enjoy an evening of "naked-eye" astronomy and listening to the Southern Summer Night chorus show with Naturalist Bob English of LEAPS. This event is appropriate for ages 9 and up. Registration required.

In the morning, the birds call out to the rising sun, but what is the sun? And why do all living things need it? Through hands on activities, exploration, and an educational story, your preschooler will have a sun-sational time learning all about the sun. Registration encouraged.
NOTE: Designed especially for children 3-5 years old and a favorite adult. Dress for the weather and be prepared to venture outside.
Sun. August 10; 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Gate opens at 5 for picnics.
