Lehigh Valley Audubon, Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Hosting Nature Programs For Students This Summer

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society are partnering on a series of Wednesday morning children’s nature programs at the Freemansburg Canal Education Center in Freemansburg, Northampton County this summer.
All programs are free-of-charge, although attendance is limited to 12 children at each event and pre-registration is required. A parent or relative is required to attend the programs.
The three-event series, for children of ages 8-12, begins with “The Beauty of Native Plants” from 10-11:30 a.m. on June 21. Children will learn the importance of flowering plants in nature and then will plant six different species on the FCEC grounds.
On July 12, Jenith Flex and Brandon Swayser will lead “A Kid’s Bird Walk Along the Lehigh Canal” from 10-11:30 a.m. Binoculars will be provided for children for this introductory program on bird identification and bird watching.
The final program, “Lessons in Healthy Stream Ecology,” will be conducted August 16 from 10-11:30 a.m. and led by LV Audubon naturalist Chad Schwartz. The program will focus on hidden life forms that inhabit streams and the importance of good water quality.
To register and acquire additional information including directions, contact D&L Education Manager, Dennis Scholl, at 610-923-3548 x225 or send email to:
