Mighty Naturalist Program at Dahlem.  10:00 – 11:00 AM.  Ages: 1-5 years old with a caregiver.  Fee: $5 per child ($4 member); free for adult and children under 1 year old.  Share your love of nature with your young child(ren). We will explore and play with nature while developing critical early childhood skills and growing self-confidence. The Mighty Naturalist Programs are geared toward children 5 years and younger with an adult caregiver to learn about animals, winter survival, birds, tracks, and more.   Today:  Super Squirrely.  If you followed a squirrel for a day, what would you see? Climbing branches, storing seeds, making homes in tree holes, and maybe even flying!  Discover different kinds of squirrels as they scamper, eat, and―finally―sleep.  We will go on a squirrely outing to look for clues squirrels are actively busy in winter, head indoors to make ‘n take squirrel craft, and read a cute story about squirrels.
