Upcoming Fledglings and Friends Story Times:

November 15: Rain

Drip-drop, plink, plink, plink, pitter-patter, gurgle, sprinkle… ah, the sounds of November!  Raindrops are plentiful this time of year and they’re what make our gorgeous part of the world so lush and green!  During this story time we’ll read about why raindrops are important for plants and animals, simulate an indoor rainstorm, and make our own rain sticks!

Date/Time: Wednesday, November 15th from 10:30-11:15am


December 20: Winter Residents

Many birds migrate to warmer locations with more food during the cold winter months. But some don't! We'll spend time learning about and exploring the birds and other animals that don't seem to be bothered by the cold, wet, sometimes frozen Seattle weather, and even make some treats to share with them!

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


January 17: Hibernation

When you wake up on a cold, dark January morning, don't you wish you could just stay in bed all day? Some animals do! We'll learn about which animals hibernate, how they do it, and what they do to prepare for a winter-long nap.

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 17th, from 10:30-11:15am
