Children’s Program will focus on forest wildlife
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a special children’s program at its Eidolon Nature Preserve in Morgan County on Saturday, March 9.
The event will be for children ages six-nine. Entitled “Run for Cover” it will help youngsters learn about forest habitats and the ways in which forest animals shelter and hide themselves.
It will last from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Eidolon Preserve encompasses 354 acres on Sideling Hill Mountain, southwest of the village of Great Cacapon.
Enrollment will be strictly limited to ensure that all children receive personal attention and pre-registration is required.
To register or get more information go to the PVA’s website or contact Ellen Murphy at 304-676-8739.
This event is part of a new Audubon program, called “Outdoor Explore!” that is intended to give youngsters a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world in a safe, supervised way. Its activities include hiking, exploration of different local habitats, plant and animal identification, and other natural science activities.
Jan Hummer, an experienced natural science educator, is leading each program session.
The program is being made possible by a grant from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
