Let's get back outside and enjoy the wonders of nature! Do your children have early dismissal from school? Are you Home Schooling? Or are you, and your children, just ready for a break and fun exploration outside at Bent of the River Audubon Center? Drop the kids off for Audubon Afternoons and leave the rest up to us! Our expert staff will lead your young naturalist(s) on scavenger hunts, hikes, and nature-based games. Children will learn how to use binoculars to spy birds, and we may even be able to snowshoe and learn how to track animals—if there is still snow on the ground.
