Merryspring Nature Center will host a free family Wildlife Detectives program Friday, Aug. 4, at 10 a.m.

Guests will use their detective skills to solve some nature mysteries. Children will be able to look for clues hidden in animal bones, skins, and tracks. After a short presentation, a brief nature walk will guide guests through the woods, looking for evidence of animal activity.

This is an outdoor program. Guests should bring water bottles, wear weather appropriate clothing, wear sturdy shoes, and be prepared to walk in summer heat for up to one hour.

This program is part of the Free Family Programs series at Merryspring. Free family programs run on select Friday mornings throughout the summer. No sign-up necessary. For more information, please contact Merryspring at 236-2239 or
