February 2021

Let’s Draw Animals!  Facebook Live – Saturday, February 27, 12:00 p.m.
Live drawing class from the Nature Center with artist and ranger, Amie.  She will demonstrate how to draw a rabbit and a guinea pig, using our own live “models” Anson, Cocoa, and Abbey.  While drawing you’ll learn some interesting facts about these animals, so it’s a bit of science as well as art.  Participants should have the following supplies:

  • White paper
  • Crayons

MAPLE SUGARING FOR FAMILIES – Wed. March 3 or Sat. Mar. 6, 11 am

This is an in-person, socially-distant event, so space is very limited.

Spring is on its way, and bluebirds are getting ready to nest.

Bluebird Walk – Saturday, March 20, 1:00 p.m.
Here at Ansonia Nature Center, we have several bluebird nest boxes on our property. Join Ranger Evelyn on this nature walk, to clean out the boxes and get them ready for the new season. This is an in-person, socially-distant event, so space is very limited.

Guided Walk:  Ranger Ramble – Sunday, March 21, 1:00 p.m.
Ramble through 2 to 3 habitats on the Nature Center property and learn about animal signs, how to identify plants and the uses of wild plants at the beginning of spring.  This will be a slow observation walk, covering distance is not the goal.
