About this event

Have you noticed how noisy it is getting outside?! Many insects – including grasshoppers and crickets – are old enough now to start singing! This month for Tales and Trails, we will be reading Are You a Grasshopper by Judy Allen & Tudor Humphries. After that, we will search for grasshoppers, crickets and other insects active in the late summer meadows. We might even try moving like grasshoppers and try imitating their sounds to make our own insect chorus.

Come prepared to be outside for the whole program time. A hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and water bottle are recommended. Long pants to protect your legs from scratchy grasses and thorns will be helpful as well.

What is Tales & Trails?

Children and their caregiver(s) gather for a short story that incites curiosity before exploring different locations around Merry Lea’s property. Expect to hear a tale & hike a trail while discovering the natural wonders around you together. This is a 1.5 hour monthly program designed for children ages 3-5, with younger siblings welcome to join, led by a Merry Lea educator.
