Busy Weekend at LSNC
The Leslie Science & Nature Center has a busy weekend planned! With 2 events planned for Saturday and Open Hours at the Critter House on Saturday, it is the place to be this weekend.
Saturday starts off with the Leslie Science & Nature Center Scavenger Hunt from 9-11a. During the event individuals, families, or friends will scour the LSNC grounds to find the items on their list. With different challenges available for kids of all ages, the event is sure to be fun. I previously shared more information on the Scavenger Hunt.
Saturday’s events continue with Super Snakes from 1-3p. The Super Snakes description from LSNC is below:
Spend some up-close time with our legless reptile friends the snakes! Meet some species from around the world – including your own backyard – as we explore what makes these fascinating creatures so successful and sometimes misunderstood. Through live demonstrations we will examine snake behaviors and even witness a meal being consumed by one of our guests. Space is limited, and pre-registration is suggested. Visit http://lesliesnc.org or call 734-997-1553 for more details and to register.
Both The Scavenger Hunt and Super Snakes are $8/person or $30/family. Registration for both events is available on the LSNC website.
Saturday wraps up with a Raptor Feeding from 3-4p. Raptor Feedings are free to attend and are held every Saturday in August and September. The LSNC description:
Drop by and see how feet and beak work together to help birds like the Red-tailed Hawk eat a rat or the Peregrine Falcon consume a quail. Volunteers will be feeding the birds and answering your questions — after watching the birds in action, you’ll likely have quite a few! Please note: this is a free drop-in event. Please be aware birds may or may not be coming out of their enclosures to eat during feeding times, depending on the species and time of feeding.
On Sunday, the Critter House is open from noon-3p with free admission. My daughter has loved visiting the Critter House when we have been at LSNC. The Critter House is open every Sunday in August and September. The LSNC description:
Observe frogs, turtles, snakes, rabbits, and more as they hop, crawl, and slither in their homes! Our animals include species native to the region as well many unique and exotic animals that have been donated by supporters. It’s a great way to get up close and personal with some adorable and unusual animals and help kids develop an appreciation for the incredible diversity of the natural world.
