Event Details

Spend one Sunday afternoon per month with a Duke Farms Educator learning all about the wonders of nature. Each Junior Naturalist (accompanied by an adult) will explore our habitats in every season and learn about a different nature topic each month. 

These programs are designed for families with children in grades K-6. At least 1 adult must accompany each child during this program, with no more than two adults accompanying each child. Please note that we cannot accommodate any children who are not currently in Kindergarten. This includes the younger siblings of any registered K through 6 participant as well as any toddlers or babies in arms, carriers, slings or strollers.

ACCOMPANYING ADULTS ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO REGISTER.

Part of each program is spent indoors learning about the topic of the month. Then we go outdoors to explore nature in the field.  Appropriate shoes are required and this program will run rain or shine, so please dress for the weather!

Mini-series 2 Schedule:

(All classes are held on Sundays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm)

April 9: Bumblebees

Bumblebees are extremely important pollinators of flowers and agricultural crops. They are able to fly in cooler temperatures than many other bees, making them excellent pollinators. April is a good time to search for Queen Bumblebees and learn all about these fuzzy friends in the garden.

May 7: Spring is for the Birds

By the middle of May, most migratory birds have returned from their winter homes.  This is a super busy time for birds as they establish territories, sing for mates, build nests, lay eggs and find food.  Let’s explore the habitats of Duke Farms as we learn why spring is for the birds.

June 4: Frogs are too Much Fun  

You may know they are both amphibians, but what’s the difference between a frog and a toad?   And why do they make so much noise at night? We’ll have a super fun time as we learn all about these unique creatures of Duke Farms.
