Children can explore how plants and animals prepare for the cold weather and darker days at Animals in Autumn-For Kids at Thorn Creek Nature Center on Sunday, November 12, 1-3 p.m. Participants will create a bird feeder, conduct an experiment and look for clues of winter preparation on a hike in the preserve.

Young people should be prepared for the cold weather and be able to walk a mile outdoors on natural surface trails across uneven and possibly snow-covered ground. The Animals in Autumn- For Kids program is free and open to ages 9 to 12, and registration is required by November 10. If weather is inclement this program will still take place inside the Nature Center.
