Have you lost a tooth? Maybe an adult tooth is growing in? Do you know anyone that might have dentures even? Teeth are important tools for all animals, not just humans. We’ll look at types of teeth and what that means about that animal's diet. At the end you’ll take a look at a deer’s teeth and see if we can tell how old that deer was.
Programs led by a CNC educator are offered every week. All children under 15 must have an adult present. We'll be using specimens from our education collection and tools for exploration, then head to the woods to put into action what we learned. We suggest wearing high socks or pants, to help with preventing ticks since this program does go out on the trails. Don't forget to register all adults in attendance.
Our fall series is focused on habitats, animals and the world around us here in Ithaca. Feel free to come to one program or come to all!
Our programs are under a "pay-what-you-can" model. All funds raised will help our education department continue their work at the Cayuga Nature Center.
Across all of these opportunities, social distancing and masks are required to comply with our current health policies.
