Nature Exchange Winter Programs and Themes
December 1, 2019 - February 29, 2020
Regularly Scheduled Programs in Nature Exchange for the Winter featuring Tiny Worlds
Living in a Log, December – February
While a crumbling, smelly, decomposing log may not sound like your dream home, it is a hotbed of activity for nature’s smaller flora and fauna. Visit Nature Exchange to see an interactive model of some downed debris and learn about its many tenants!
What’s in a World? December – February
To many of us a tree is just a tree- maybe pretty, maybe even majestic but a tree nonetheless. Well to other organisms, a tree is their entire world. Visit us on the lower level of the Discovery Center to learn about a variety of organisms who live their lives in a single tree- be it the branches, trunk, or roots.
Amazing Annelids, December – February
The habitat and goings-on of annelids, segmented worms, including earthworms, can be a mystery since they occur underground. Come learn about these amazing creatures through observation of our very own worm world.
Indoor Scavenger Hunt, December – February
Warm up in Nature Exchange as you hunt for themed clues to complete our Indoor Scavenger Hunts. There is a new theme each month. Find answers, earn points, and make learning fun!
Outdoor Scavenger Hunt, December–February
Put on your coziest winter gear and get outside to search the CNC grounds for miniature nature scenes. Take photos, show the photos to the Nature Exchange Naturalist, and earn 10 points for each small scene captured. Earn up to 100 points. Your imagination is the limit with this fun photography scavenger hunt!
Lost Pond Pals, Throughout December
The pond is a wondrous world that is home to many creatures, big and small. Can you help them get back home? Help your pond pals by putting them back in the habitat where they live. When everyone is home, pond life is in perfect balance!
World Wide Web, Throughout January
Deep underground lies a well-oiled machine made of small components that add up to a big system! Come down to Nature Exchange to learn more about the relationship between mycorrhizal fungi and tree roots- a surprising pair working together right under our feet.
Teeny Tiny Tardigrades, Throughout February
Come to Nature Exchange to learn about one of nature’s tiniest yet most indestructible creatures. Learn how you can look for a tardigrade in your own backyard!
