Animals have all different ways of moving, seeing, hearing, smelling and more. We'll discover some of these differences as we read a book, do some activities, and make a craft. We’ll plan to be out on the trail for a bit, so dress for the weather! All activities will be geared towards 3 to 5 year-olds and meant for parents to do with their children.
