Session 3: July 14-18(5 days) Winged Wonders What’s all this buzzing around? It’s that time of the summer when flying creatures are everywhere. Time to break out the bug nets and binoculars and start exploring our wildlife sanctuaries in search of the insects and birds that zip around the sky. We might see evidence of flying mammals as well. Ever wonder what NH Audubon has done over the past 100 years to help protect the flying species that inhabit our state? Spend time with our live birds while you learn about this and more. Session 4: July 21-31 (9 days) Wilderness Ways How do plants and animals survive when the weather is inclement or food is in shortage? What could we learn from them that could help us survive?
