During this 2-hour program, students will learn about beavers, their life and traits, and how they change the landscape. We will create models of a beaver dam and learn the importance of these structures to the beaver family and to the landscape. On our hike, we will look for evidence of beavers in the Rancocas preserve. The environmentally-themed six-week series is aimed at homeschoolers, ages 5 to 11, and incorporates model making, science experiments, art, ecology, journaling, and nature study. Each session will involve indoor/outdoor learning and investigation, weather permitting, so please dress appropriately. In the case of severe inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled to the following Friday morning. Participants must register for the full 6-week series and be Rancocas Nature Center family members. Minimum class size is 10 students. Cost: $75/student for the 6-week series is payable at registration. Call the Nature Center at 609-261-2495. Series continues March 20.
