Cultivate kids’ natural curiosity as well as their green thumbs by creating a wildlife haven at home. This class is designed for kids, ages 4-11, along with their parents or grandparents. Kids will learn all about what they and their family can do in their own backyard to invite some of Austin’s best-known native fauna – birds, butterflies, frogs, lizards, and even earthworms – to visit. This 1.5-hour class will include a short engaging slideshow and hands-on activities to introduce the elements of habitat as well as the kinds of wildlife we are likely to see here in Central Texas. It will also include a walk through a wildlife habitat to observe the different elements of habitat in action and discover what wildlife calls that habitat home. The class will introduce fun and simple projects that families can do together, and kids will get to complete an in-class “gift for wildlife” project to take home to their garden. Whoooo will visit your garden next? Class size is limited to 16 children and one adult must accompany each 1-2 children.
Tuition for the class is $15 per child and includes the cost of project materials -- parents are free!
For questions or if class is full and you want to be on the waiting list, contact Meredith O’Reilly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
