Animal Babies at Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center


This is a good time of year to celebrate furry little animal babies. Aren’t they cute? They wake up, dash around, leap and jump, play hard with each other, and then cuddle up and fall asleep again. While their parents feed, protect and teach them, the babies are learning about the world around them.

Bring your kids, age 3 and up, to celebrate animal babies, and make a furry little animal to take home.

9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Free. At Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center.

Peanut Says 'No More Trash!'

Peanut the turtle is a female red-eared slider who is famous for her figure. Her shape is the result of litter – a plastic six pack ring that she crawled through and got stuck in as a young turtle. After being rescued in 1993, she has since become the mascot for the “No More Trash” campaign.

Peanut now lives at Powder Valley Nature Center where she continues to spread the word about littering.
