EBB_Nest.jpgFamily Wildlife Series programs are usually open to all ages, although information and activities are most appropriate for ages 5 and up. Occasionally there will be a FWS program with an age limit of 5 and up and will be so indicated in the description. All members of the family in attendance must be registered to attend the program – if you are unable to register a family member, either the size limit of the class has been reached or that child does not meet the age limit to attend. Don't forget – kids are not required to attend – individual adults are welcomed! Preregistration is required for all Family Wildlife Series Programs unless otherwise stated.

3rd Annual Great Blue Jay Nature Hunt Cancelled
Monday, April 6, 1–2:30 p.m.
Take part in the 3rd Annual Great Blue Jay Nature Hunt. Pick up your search list, learn how to navigate the park and then head out to find and photograph designated items throughout the park (e.g., "take a pic of a tree shorter than you.") Document your successes on your smartphone – you are encouraged to use Google and apps on your phone to look up info and ID plants and animals before submitting photos of your 10 best finds for points. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: Adults (16 and over), Families w/kids average age 9 & up, and Families w/ kids average age 8 & under (some item locations are stroller-friendly). Hunt starts at the Education Center. Happy Hunting! This family event is part of the NC Science Festival and preregistration is recommended, as it will speed up your sign-in process at the Hunt. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in if you have NOT preregistered.

 

**Note** Public Programs at Blue Jay have been canceled through April 30, 2020.  

Closer to that time, we will update this page.
