• Look under the water with Michael Olsen's remarkable videos of fish and turtles.
• Walk the banks of the River.
• Meet our family of swans with the complicated story of their arrival here. Make an elegant swan that will swim in your bathtub.
• Look for ducks and make a colorful duckling decoy.
• Join your group in making a nest box that will welcome a brace of ducks next spring.
• Make a rugged turtle that will swim to find its nest.
• Map your adventures and explorations with watercolors in a journal.
