Upcoming Nature Hikes & Programs
Four community members will share stories of Lafayette Open Space, followed by an invitation to all participants to share their own stories and memories.
Kids ages 5 and up can learn about animal camouflage through fun activities and hands-on games.
Attend this slide show to learn about snow: how it forms, what it looks like up close, and how it helps animals survive in the cold.
Kids will imagine they are a herd of deer. We'll play a game, sing a deer song, learn a magical story, and prance and stroll like deer. ~
Tracking is exciting! It's like being a detective: you learn about animals' ways and find clues to understand their stories. ~
