Fledglings and Friends is a regular Seattle Audubon Event! Mark every 3rd Wednesday of the month from 10:30-11:15am on your calendars for Seattle Audubon Fledglings and Friends Story Time!

Dedicated to the youngest bird and nature enthusiasts in our community, Fledglings and Friends Story Time offers children ages 2-5 an opportunity to hear stories about birds and nature, do fun crafts, explore the outdoors, and just have fun! Each story time has a different theme around which all activities are centered. Come join us in The Nature Shop for a great time! All story times are $2 per child and first come first served. No preregistration or RSVP required.

Upcoming Fledglings and Friends Story Times:

December 19: Penguins

We may not have penguins locally, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate our super-cute tuxedo-clad friends. 

Date/Time: Wednesday, December 19, from 10:30-11:15am


January 16: Snow

Snow makes the cold, dark, winter months a little more festive. We'll read stories about animals in snow, and create a fun snowflake craft.

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 16, from 10:30-11:15am


February 20: Hummingbirds

Feburary is a busy time for our local Anna's Hummingbirds, as they are building their nests and laying their eggs. We'll read stories about these tenacious little birds and do a fun hummingbird craft. We'll take some time to look at real humming birds and their nests too!

Date/Time: Wednesday, February 20, from 10:30-11:15am


March 20: Flowers

Spring is here and so are the flowers! We'll read stories about springtime flowers, and plant our own flower seeds to take home.

Date/Time: Wednesday, March 20, from 10:30-11:15am
