LEWISTON – Students in grades two through six are invited to sign up to join the Junior Naturalist Club of the Stanton Bird Club.

On the first Monday evening of each month there is a program on a nature topic and a field trip the following Saturday to learn more about that topic in the outdoors. Some of the programs this year will be on the city trees of Lewiston/Auburn, local cooperative farms, wildlife tracking in the snow, salt marsh ecology on the coast and old growth pine trees in Maine.

The kick-off registration will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, during the Thorncrag Fall Nature Festival. Meet at the sanctuary gate at the end of East Avenue. The membership cost is $10 a child for the year. After the registration there will be nature activities for everyone at the sanctuary until noon.

For more information or questions, call Susan Hayward, 782-5238.
