When February rolls around, we start thinking about pink and red hearts and the ones we love.

Animals don't celebrate Valentine's Day, but they do love their families and show affection in different ways. On the February 16th Hands-on-Habitat, we will discover Love in the Forest.

We'll ask questions like:

  • How do deer find each other in the big forest?
  • Where do squirrel parents keep their babies?
  • How do woodpeckers call their mates?

On our hike we will look for squirrel nests, use our noses like deer do to find their partners, and practice the woodpecker's language they use to locate their families.

All this plus fun crafts and a story will make this Hands-on-Habitat a must.

You can register for this fun, free class for preschoolers and their adults on the Hands-on-Habitat registration page.
