Family Programs at the Festival
Spring is a time to get outside and enjoy the sights and sounds the natural world has to offer. What better way is there than to take your children or grandchildren and teach them about nature and how to preserve and treasure what we now can experience in our area. The Huron Fringe Birding Festival is much more than just about birds and has several interesting events that are geared towards young learners who want to enjoy what nature has to offer.
The events have knowledgeable leaders and cover subjects such as, Tracks and Scats (identify animal tracks and droppings), Take a Peek at the Beak (learn about shapes and types of bird beaks), Sciensational SSSnakes (a hands-on experience with reptiles and amphibians), Dyes from Nature and Spinning Wool (create a Tie-Dye bandana and also your own wool spindle to take home with you) and Frog Frolic (check out some ponds for species of frogs and toads).
These events cover a variety of nature knowledge and help give kids a much better understanding of the importance of nature in each and every day of our lives. They are FUN and INFORMATIVE!!!
Bring out the kids and everyone can have fun and enjoy some of what nature offers!
