Family Exploration Days at Tin Mountain Conservation Center
Tuesdays, June 30 – August 11, 2020
Explore the natural world in the Rockwell Sanctuary with Tin Mountain Teacher Naturalists. Spend time learning about the area that surrounds the Nature Learning Center at our Albany Campus. Each themed week features a different aspect of nature. Families / pre-arranged groups are welcome to sign up for just one Tuesday session or enjoy the whole series to brush up on their natural knowledge. Each Tuesday features 2 different time slots one starting at 9, the next at 10:30, each with 3 stations. Each station is staffed by a Tin Mountain Naturalist equipped with the necessary tools to help families get closer to the subject matter. One station may use nets to catch, identify and learn about insects, or amphibians, another, an eye-loop to get a closer look at a new discovery. Each session lasts about 1.5 – 2 hours.
To maintain social distancing guidelines, each family or prearranged group, will start at a different station and rotate to visit all three. Please arrive about 15 minutes early to get signed in and pointed in the right direction. Bring a snack and water (no single use plastic bottles please) or bring a picnic to enjoy at one of our picnic tables after your morning exploration. Here are the first two sessions with more in development.
Tuesday, June 30: Curious Critter Safari
Tuesday, July 7: Fantastic Flower and Incredible Insect Exploration
