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.
