Trout Lake Nature Center will now offer a Saturday Family Naturalist series designed to provide fun and learning for ages 6 and up.

The program starts with brief background information on the monthly topic and followed by a walk to discover bugs, moths, butterflies, plants and more. The first program, ‘Bugged Out’ will focus on the world of insects and spiders as we examine specimens and search for live examples in our habitats. You will also get the chance to eat edible insects including ants, scorpions and worms. Fun for the family or individuals.

 

Pre-registration is required and only 30 people will be accepted into the program due to its hands-on nature. To register for this event go to www.universe.com/FNNov. There is no cost to attend but as an independent non-profit we welcome all donations to help with our programming costs. Elementary and middle school aged children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress for the outdoors. We suggest you wear close-toed shoes and long pants since we may be going off the trails. You might want to bring a hat and sunscreen.

Other Family Naturalist programs will be offered as follows:

  • Aquatic Animals – Dec. 8
  • Birds, Birds and More Birds – Jan. 12
  • The Florida Black Bear – Feb. 9
  • Plants of Florida – Mar. 9
  • Moths and Butterflies – Apr. 13

These events also offer a photo opportunity for local media. For more information contact Eileen Tramontana at 352-357-7536 or tlnc.director@gmail.com.
