Earth Preparing for Winter

Ohio

Children will learn through stories, activities and a short hike how the earth is getting ready for the cold months ahead.  This program will be led by Bissell Nature Center volunteers.

Open to kids ages 4-7 with an accompanying adult. Limit of 8 kids in the group.

Please dress for the weather!

The group will meet at the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center which is located  within the Grand River Conservation Campus on the Morgan Swamp Preserve .

At nearly 2,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve is one of the largest privately protected forested wetlands in Ohio. The swamp is home to an abundance of wetlands including swamps, bogs, beaver ponds and vernal pools. A rich diversity of plants and animals call it home, from the beautiful white calla lily to the tiny four-toed salamander hidden among the vernal pools.
