Spring is the season for babies! Join us as we learn about how animals prepare for the birth of their babies and care for them until they are independent. We will explore the forest and try to find evidence of baby season (eggs, nests, or even actual babies)! Join us as we explore the question what does it mean to be alive. Each session will include experiments with the help of live animals or plants. Registration required.
