Ribbiting Fun for All Ages. Hop on Down to Hirundo. ~ May 14, 3–5 p.m.

The program will take place at the Parker Reed Shelter accessible through Gate 1.

May ~ Froggy Eggs-ploration.

What came first, the frog or the egg? We may never know, but join us as we explore the pond looking for egg sacs and learning about the life cycle of our amphibious friends. During the program, the children will learn about the life cycle of frogs, supported by fun and challenging hands-on activities appealing to many learning styles. After a brief break we will go for a walk. Our goal is to identify the different egg masses in the pools along the trail and observe the habitat. Upon returning to the shelter every child has an opportunity to create a frog habitat in a jar with added seed that will develop into “pseudo frog eggs.” Lastly, we will revisit the frog songs learned during the first session using the Lily Pad Game. The focus will be on the frogs who will be calling during the rest of the upcoming seasons.

*Parents are requested to bring a glass jar with a cover per child for a take home project.
