Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge Nature Storytime Begins Friday, May 12

Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge is excited to announce a new Nature Storytime program series, to begin Friday May 12, 2017, 10:00 AM, at the Refuge Visitor Center (3395 U.S. Route 20 East Seneca Falls, NY 13148). Led by Librarian and The Lodge Nature Store Manager, Gayle James, Nature Storytime is for children in pre-K through 3rd grade. There is no fee for this program.

Each Friday, children will meet with Miss Gayle on her eagle nest storytime mat, where she will read a nature-themed children’s story. The group will do a related craft and then head outside (weather-permitting) to explore nature first-hand. Topics will include things like birds (nesting, waterfowl, birds of prey), wildflowers and pollinators (bees, butterflies, bats), dragonflies, turtles, fox and other mammals.

Parents are required to stay with their children during the program. Please come prepared with sunscreen, insect repellent, and sturdy shoes.

To pre-register, please call (315) 568-5987. For more information, email andrea_vanbeusichem@fws.gov
