Little Explorers - Pitter and Patter

Little Explorers Learn about the Water Cycle at Audubon, Saturday, October 14

Jamestown, NY – “Oh, the places you’ll go and the creatures you’ll see,” as you join Pitter and Patter to learn about the water cycle.

“Pitter and Patter, A Water Story,” the theme for Audubon Community Nature Center’s next Little Explorers, is based on the book written by Martha Sullivan and illustrated by Cathy Morrison.

On Saturday, October 14, 10-11:30 a.m., you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about the water cycle through exploration and this book.

Water is everywhere, falling from the sky, sitting underground, even moving inside your body. Here you can learn how water moves through nature.

The water on the planet is finite and has been recycling itself for eons. With the help of the sun, wind, and gravity, water flows through habitats, in and out of living things, and forms the clouds that fill the sky. Water works to connect everything.

After reading about two raindrop friends, Pitter and Patter, you will go outside to explore some water around Audubon. Returning inside, you will enjoy a snack and, if there is time, a craft.

The program runs rain or shine and going outdoors is the most important part, so come dressed for the weather.

The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children.  Reservations are required by Thursday, October 12, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at
