With winter school vacation starting Monday, you may be looking for a way to get your child out of the house. Luckily, Audubon Greenwich is offering winter weather-themed outings for kids from Feb. 14 to Feb. 18. Pack a snack and a lunch, and be prepared to be outside in all kinds of weather.
Winter break campers in kindergarten through third grade can sign up for one to four fun-filled days of hikes, games and crafts. Mondays theme is Marvelous Mammals, Tuesdays is Tracks and Traces, Wednesdays is Winter Survival Strategies, Thursdays is Wild About Winter and Fridays theme is Great Backyard Bird Count Day.
Children in grades 4 through 6 can sign up to participate in Fridays great backyard bird count, in which campers of all ages will travel to two locations in Greenwich in search of winter birds. Data collected will help scientists and bird enthusiasts determine where birds are across the continent.
All events run 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The cost is $55 a day for members and $65 a day for nonmembers. For more information call Lindsey DeVito at 203-869-5272, Ext. 235, and to sign up visit Audubons website .
