Fall Colors
Saturday, Oct. 21, 2–3 p.m.
Learn about fall tree identification as you create leaf “windows” to take home.

Saturday, Oct. 28, 2–3:30 p.m.
Learn about fall fruits of all kinds (and who eats them!) before creating a Jack-O-Lantern of your own.  One pumpkin per family!

Who Wants to be a Scatologist?
Friday, Nov. 10, 10–11:30 a.m.
Come to Blue Jay and get the “straight poop” on the subject of scat (animal droppings). Scientists study scat to find out many things—join us to find out what! We will play a rousing game of “Who Dung It?” followed by a hike for some inspiration before making our own “Scat Snack.” How cool is that?! This program is for ages 5 and up.

A Little Bit Squirrelly
Saturday, Nov. 11, 2–3 p.m.
Learn about fall tree identification as you create leaf “windows” to take home.

Holiday Habitat Helpers
Saturday, Dec. 9, 2–3 p.m.
You can attract winter wildlife to your backyard by providing or improving their habitat. We’ll check out Blue Jay’s Garden Area for some ideas before creating several simple habitat helpers you can add to your own yard.

Green and On the Scene
Saturday, Dec. 30, 2–3 p.m.
Do you think that winter time means everything is dried up, dull and dreary? Think again! Join Blue Jay staff for an outdoor adventure hunting winter plants and trees that are green and on the scene! All participants must be independently mobile or in a child backpack. No strollers, please!
