FENCE to teach children more about animals, winter at program Tuesday

Published 8:00 am Thursday, January 10, 2019

Foothills Equestrian Nature Center will offer its Kids Nature Club this month from 3-5 p.m. on Tuesday.

The activities offered will be both fun and educational, aimed to engage children between the ages of 5 and 12, organizers said. Kids Nature Club is free and open to the public, and will be held on a drop-in basis, so adults should plan to accompany their children while at FENCE. Families who bring their kids by for Kids Nature Club can also spend some time during their visit exploring the trails.

This month’s focus will be animal behaviors in the winter. Kids will have the opportunity to learn how animals prepare and survive the winter, create a craft and check out the rest of FENCE’s animals.
