Greenbelt Family Nature Series Nurtures Conservation Ethic in Children
To help introduce our next generation of environmental leaders to the wonders of our natural world, Greenbelt is partnering with North
Shore Nature Programs to offer a special series of FREE naturalist-led family programs on Greenbelt properties.
Each program will have a seasonal focus and allow for kids, parents, grandparents and caregivers to experience local landscapes and nature, while learning and exploring the natural history of
each site. Some programs are limited to maximum of 25 people. Recommended ages are 6 and older.
October 15, 1:00-2:30 pm
All About Beavers
Join Greenbelt and North Shore Nature Programs for this walk for families and friends of all ages to learn about beavers, right where they live!
We'll look at how beavers chew through trees to cut them down and make their homes. We'll also learn how and why they stop streams from flowing and create "beaver ponds."
We'll talk about what they eat, what they do when their pond freezes in the winter, how they carry mud to their homes, and how they use their big, flat tails!
