Nature Exchange Summer Programs and Themes
July 1 - August 31
Regularly Scheduled Programs in Nature Exchange for the Summer: Chattahoochee Summer Celebration
Pollination Celebration, June – August
What do the fruit salad at your picnic, the chocolate in your candy bar, and the tomato in your BLT all have in common? They wouldn’t exist without pollinators. Learn all about who they are, what they do, and why they should be celebrated all year round.
Nature’s Fireworks, June – August
What’s that flickering in the dusky summer air? It’s one of the hallmarks of summer, the firefly. Fireflies may spark joy in people’s hearts, but how do they spark that light in their rear? Discover that and more this summer at the Nature Exchange.
The Science of Play, June – August
When summer rolls around, kids and grown-ups alike get a hankering to set the world aside for a bit and play. Believe it or not, animals do too, and there’s more behind it than just blowing off some steam after a long day. Learn about the science of play this quarter in the Nature Exchange.
Indoor Scavenger Hunt, June – August
Cool off inside at the Nature Exchange as you hunt for themed clues to complete our Indoor Scavenger Hunts. There is a new theme each month. Explore nature’s most celebratory season and earn NEX points as you go.
Outdoor Scavenger Hunt, June – August
Head outdoors and search high and low for the signs of summer at CNC. Pick up a scavenger hunt sheet from the Nature Exchange before you go. The more answers you find, the more NEX points you can earn.
Colorful Cues, Throughout June
In summer time, color is everywhere you look outdoors. We stop to take in the beauty, but have you ever stopped to think about why color is important in the natural world? What purpose does it serve? Come find out at the Nature Exchange and watch color take on new meaning.
World in a Jar, Throughout July
Want the chance to observe a firefly up close and personal? Come visit the Nature Exchange and check out an example bug jar. Learn what an insect needs in a habitat to survive, and get inspired to head home and make your very own. Don’t forget the most important feature of a bug jar: releasing the insects once you’ve had a chance to observe them.
Play Poses, Throughout August
Come get silly in the Nature Exchange this August. After you learn about why animals play, explore some examples and see if you can put yourself in their shoes.
