Program on hibernating animals planned at Neal Smith NWR

The Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge will present a Nature Tots program on hibernating animals from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday for children ages 3 to 5.

A refuge naturalist will read stories, take participants outside, lead children in making nature crafts and more. The program is free and open to the public.

Nature Tots programs are educational programs that are especially designed for young learners. Lessons focus on engaging children’s senses and use hands-on and interactive activities. 

Those interested in attending must register for the program to ensure the refuge has enough materials and personnel to provide the best learning experience for all participants. To register, contact Megan Wandag at (515) 994-3400 or megan_wandag@fws.gov. The next Nature Tots program will be on Saturday, Jan. 12.
