•. Frolicking With Frogs
Sunday, August 10th @ 2:00 pm
Attention kids of all ages!!  It's time to get your feet wet, wander in the water and woods with Pat Carney and "clack", "trill", "twang" and "grunt" with the frog people.  Come explore who the different frogs are and where and how they live.  A stroll through the woods and to the ponds of the center, follows a short indoor program.  Wear old clothes and shoes, (no flip flops please), and be prepared to get wet and have fun.
