June Events
5     Star Party: Venus Transit
5:30-7:30pm
A Star Party during the day? That’s right! Venus will be moving across the sun, and you can watch! These “transits” are extremely rare. The last one was in 2004, and the one before that, in 1882 was used to calculate the distance of the Earth from the Sun and, subsequently, the size of our solar system! The next won’t occur until 2117. You’ll want to catch this one! $5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

12   That’s Ferntastic!
10:30am
Tom loves ferns… a lot. Join him on this easy walk to discover the ferns growing in Baltimore Woods, and to see why their elegant fiddleheads and beautiful fronds have not only survived for millennia, but have also fascinated people for generations. $5 for members, $8 for nonmembers.

16, 23, and 30 Frog Catching Party
1-3pm
Frogs! Where? Down at Phillips Pond of course! Join our Naturalists for a celebration of all things frogs as we engage in this classic childhood activity. Space is limited to 30 people— register early. $5 for members; $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

20   Solstice Stroll
7:30-9pm
Join one of our Naturalists for a pleasant hike through the evening woods, celebrating the longest day of the year. Experience the sights and sounds of the forest as animals prepare for the night. We’ll stroll past the beaver pond in hopes of seeing these elusive creatures in action. We won’t stay out ‘til the cows come home, but perhaps ‘til the fireflies come out! $5 for members; $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

29   Nature’s Little Explorers Frog Frenzy (for preschool age children)
10-11:30am
Join us for every child’s favorite nature activity – catching frogs! We will supply the nets and you supply the child. Wear clothes and shoes that will get MUDDY! Children must be accompanied by an adult. Meet at the lower parking lot. $5/child (member); $8/child (nonmember); adults free.

29   Home School Expeditions Stream  Stomp
1-2:30pm
Get into exploring a stream – literally! Students will wade in our stream searching for invertebrates and other animals to help us determine Baltimore Brook’s water quality. Wear sturdy water shoes and shorts, and get ready to get wet! Meet at the lower parking lot. $5/child (member); $8/child (nonmember); adults free.

***
Baltimore Woods Nature in the City brings authentic natural science learning to K-6 grade urban school children. Supported by the Syracuse City School District and corporate sponsors, tied to the Syracuse City School District curriculum and New York State Science Standards, lesson content supports teachers while directly impacting students. Holding programs in parks and neighborhood green spaces as well as the classroom, students’ earliest learning experiences in the sciences are relevant, meaningful and fun.
