Track That Animal - Sat. 8/21 @ 10:30 am
The Lutz Children’s Museum will present their program Track That Animal!

Animals leave behind messages revealing their activities. Learn to “read” nature stories by looking for the evidence left behind by common Connecticut species. Evidence of an animal’s presence teaches us how well an animal survives in its habitat. From caves to trees, an animal’s home needs to provide food, water, and shelter for survival.

For children ages 5-10. Space is limited to 25 children, registration required.
