Learn about baby animals and how animal mothers care for their young at a free program, “Mothers in Nature,” on Saturday at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve east of Woodland.
Children will have the opportunity to build a bird’s nest as well as enjoy other activities. Participants will take a walk around the grounds and may see various baby animals. Recently, baby geese have been swimming in the wetlands.
The workshop will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the preserve, 34199 County Road 20, and will be led by Cache Creek Conservancy board members Fred Vanderwold and Sally Barrett. The program is sponsored by Cache Creek Conservancy, and there is no charge to participate. For more information, call 530-661-1070 or email [email protected].
The preserve will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Guests may walk the trails and enjoy a picnic lunch in the creekside habitat. Bring your own water; dogs are not permitted.
