Fernbank presents bird watching, chemistry and more

In clicking around the Fernbank Science Center web site for my previous post, I found a variety of programs coming up this fall:

  • A bird watching tour in Fernbank Forest the morning of Oct. 16
  • National Fossil Day activities from 1-5 p.m. on Oct. 16. Kids can do a fossil dig and create a fossil cast, and it’s all free.
  • Chemistry Night In, an evening of hands-on chemistry and physics activities for kids in 4th-6th grades. The first session will be held Oct. 22 and will look at how chemistry is used to create special effects for movies. Registration fee of $15 per child ($10 per additional sibling) is due by Oct. 15.
  • Exploring Nature with Your Child. Taught by an ecologist, this program encourages children to bring in natural items they find (e.g., unusual bugs, feathers, leaves) to learn more about what animals and plants are in our local habitats. The ecologist also discusses a nature topic and takes the kids out for a walk in the forest. This free program will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 7, Oct. 21 and Nov. 4. No registration is necessary.
