Preschoolers will discover what kinds of animals hibernate and which ones are out on the search for food during "Critters Among Us," Port Discover's Toddler Time, on Thursday, January 20 at 10 a.m.  Children will make fun-shaped bird treats to hang outside for their own critters!

Toddler Time is a special science program just for preschoolers, ages 3 - 5.  Cost for the program is $5 per family and reservations are required.  Parents or guardians must accompany the child.

Port Discover is located at 611 East Main Street in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  The science center's hours are Tuesday through Friday from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.  Programs can be arranged at other times for special groups.  For more information, call 252-338-6117 or
