HancockHarris Center offering squirrels up close for students

The Harris Center in Hancock will host Go Wild For At-home Learners: Squirrels Up Close on Friday, Nov. 20 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

This school year, whether you’re homeschooling or learning remotely, consider joining the Harris Center one Friday a month for outside-only nature experiences, guided by their talented teacher-naturalists. Learn how to use tools and your own curiosity to discover the wild secrets of where you live. Sharpen your observation skills, think scientifically, draw what you see, write what you feel, and open your senses to all that you can learn about this place we call home.

In November, it will be all about squirrels – using binoculars, behavior guides, and tracking skills, to observe squirrels in the wild, and find out how they communicate with their tails, and discover how they prepare for winter. After this class, you will never look at a squirrel the same way again.

This learning experience is for homeschoolers and remote learners in Grades 1 through 5. All classes will meet outside, and will follow the Harris Center’s COVID-19 outing guidelines.

Cost is $20 per class for Harris Center supporters, $30 for all others.

Group size is limited to eight participants, and registration is required. To register, visit
