Over in the Meadow by Olive A. Wadsworth, illustrated by Anna Vojtech
“Over in the meadow in a hole in a tree, lived….”  Come to Tamarack to find out the rest!  Since the prairie is so much fun to explore, we'll make a fun hat to keep the sun off our heads and then venture outside to hide in the grass, count the flowers and discover the prairie.

Friday, July 15 or August 5

Jump Frog Jump by Robert Kalan, illustrated by Byron Barton
There are many kinds of frogs that call the nature center home! We'll create our own frog chorus and explore the pond in search of all the creatures that share their watery home.  If we’re lucky, we may find a tadpole!  Feel free to wear your little rubber boots – it could be messy.

Friday, July 22 or August 12

Dinosaur Bones by Bob Barner
There aren’t any dinosaurs at Tamarack now, but there may have been at one time!  We will look at different kinds of dinosaurs, discover different animal bones as well as fossils and take a hike to a “dinosaur dig”.  Will you be able to find what’s hidden there?
