World of Wonder Presents “The Forest and Wetlands Prepare for Winter”

by | Oct 14, 2021

WOW logoOn Saturday, October 23, 9:30 -11:00 AM, WOW (World of Wonder) is hosting an exploration of a local nature preserve to see how it is preparing for winter. WOW is a free nature discovery program for children with their families – an opportunity for them to explore, discover, and enjoy the wonders of the natural world together. WOW’s Nature Outings are small because we want kids and parents to have easy access to the naturalist so they can ask questions and have those questions answered. You can find out more about us at

We know that in October, it’s time to get out our sweaters and coats for the cold weather that is coming. The forest trees and wetland creatures, too, know that they must get ready for the cold season. How do they know it’s time? What kind of activities do the trees and wildlife engage in to prepare for the winter?

Join WOW and naturalist Theresa Morr as we explore the West Branch Nature Preserve preparing for winter. This outing is for children and their families. The minimum age is 4 years old. We recommend long pants, boots, or sturdy walking shoes appropriate for muddy areas. Please no dogs or strollers. Masks are preferred. We will cancel only if there is heavy rain or strong thunderstorms. (West Branch Nature Preserve – 18232 Shearer Rd, Davidson, NC)
