Have you ever wondered which bird was making a certain call? Or seen a bird with beautiful colors and thought about how nice it would be to know what it was? Then come out to Bird Search!

After a quick lesson on common birds in the area, their calls and identifiable features, we will take to the trails to search for feathered friends. This class will traverse every trail at Valley Crest, searching for fluttering songbirds and soaring hawks. Be sure to bring along binoculars if you have them and wear sturdy shoes for walking. Remember, we will be outside for a long time so bring along plenty of water and wear sun and bug protection.

This class is great for anybody aged 9-14 that is interested in birds!

Explore the skeletal systems of various New Jersey animals. Examine real artifacts and see if you can piece together a skeleton yourself (and identify the animal it came from)! We will consider the skeletal makeup of different animals and how they help those animals survive!
