Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Fat and fur and food and flight. Come explore how animals prepare for the cold weather and darker days at Animals in Autumn-For Kids at Thorn Creek Nature Center on Sunday, October 20, 1-3 p.m. Children will create a bird feeder, feel how fat insulates animals and look for clues of winter preparation on a hike in the preserve.
Young people should be prepared for the cold weather and be able to walk a mile outdoors on natural surface trails across uneven and possibly snow-covered ground. The Animals in Autumn for Kids program is free and open to ages 6 to 9, and registration is required by October 18. If the weather is inclement this program will still take place inside the Nature Center.
