Nature Play Day (Children 2 – 8 with or without an adult)
Saturday, November 17, 2018
10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Reservations appreciated, walk-ins welcome.

This month’s Play Day is extended to encourage families to participate in Audubon’s longest-running tradition, Thanksgiving with the Birds. Find details about that event in the newsletter or online.

Let children explore unstructured outdoor play in a safe environment while you learn how to continue the nature play experience at home. It is an open house format so stay as long as you’d like. *This program is supported by the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation Legacy Funds from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

Children 2 – 8 and their favorite adult(s) can drop in anytime Saturday morning in Audubon’s Nature Play Area. Materials change with the weather and season. A naturalist is available for questions and information. This month only parents may drop their children off with the naturalist to attend the program happening indoors as part of Thanksgiving with the Birds.

Unstructured play outside is beneficial to a child’s physical and mental development as well as their understanding and appreciation of the natural world. However, concerns about safety, location, materials and the value of play are often barriers in creating these experiences. This program aims to inspire both kids and adults to make discoveries and feel more comfortable about the natural world through play.

Be prepared to play outside. Wear clothes and footwear that can get wet and dirty. You may want to bring an extra change of clothes or a towel for the car ride home. Adults may want to bring a chair, snacks and water or a drink.   

Special Information: Rain or shine. In the case of severe weather, the program will be cancelled.
