For Young Nature Enthusiasts
The South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton has several programs coming up to capture the attention of children who love all things nature.
For kids 8 and up, SoFo’s Young Birders Club will meet on Saturday at 10 a.m. For outdoor birdwatching, SoFo recommends taking a pair of binoculars and a field guide, though there are some available to borrow if needed.
On Sunday at 11 a.m., in advance of Groundhog Day, SoFo will ask children of all ages, “What is a groundhog? Will he see his shadow?” The program costs $15 for adults and $10 for children, and includes admission to the museum itself. Museum members may attend for free.
Looking ahead, SoFo’s Young Environmentalists Society, for kids 10 to 16, will meet on Saturday, Jan. 28. On Sunday, Jan. 29, there will be an opportunity for kids and teens 10 and up to take part in a community service project — building bluebird nesting boxes — from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pizza will be served.
SoFo asks participants to register ahead of time by phone at 631-537-9735 or by email to [email protected].
