Calling all kids ages 9 through 18 who care about wildlife! Try your hand at field research, develop your naturalist skills, and do something to help the wild animals of our world by counting critters with the Harris Center.

In August, kick up stones and muck as we survey Hancock’s Moose Brook for water scorpions, predaceous diving beetles, water pennies, and more! Look under rocks for sparkling stone caddisfly cases and discover what creatures like stonefly, dragonfly, and mayfly nymphs can tell us about the water quality of the brook. Be sure to check out our other Kids Count for Wildlife events, too.

Meet at 10 a.m. at the Hancock Depot. Done by 11 a.m. Children under the age of 12 need to be accompanied by an interested family member. All others can attend without parental supervision. Rain date: August 18. Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For more information about this particular event, please contact Susie.
