Experience Spring at Habitat (Family)


Family Classes -
Spring 2021

Please note: Fees are for one adult and one child. Please register under the adult’s name only.

Vernal Pool Exploration Vernal pools are temporary bodies of water that do not support fish, which are voracious predators. As a result they are a sanctuary for many unique animals like frogs, salamanders, and insects. During this excursion, you will visit Habitat’s vernal pool and discover all the species that call it home. You may even find shrimp! Please bring waterproof boots for walking around in ankle to knee deep water. Habitat will supply nets for catching and observing vernal pool creatures. Ages 6+ Saturday, April 10 9:00–11:00 am

Birding: Incoming Migrants: May is the time of year where hundreds of bird species are flying across Massachusetts to their northern breeding grounds and Habitat Sanctuary is a popular pitstop along the way. We will teach you how to use binoculars (we will supply) and show you the ins and outs of locating birds in a forest canopy. This program will be suitable for both beginners and advanced birders. Ages 6+ Saturday, May 8  9:00–11:00 am

Plants and their Pollinators: Pollination is one of nature's most important ecosystem services. Through observing Habitat’s community garden and meadows, you will discover a variety of animal pollinators and the flowers they turn to fruits. It’s not all about honey bees—which are not even native to Massachusetts! Ages 6+ Saturday, June 5  9:00–11:00 am
