Kids get the scoop on birds and bees
BURLINGTON — Animal Scoops, a virtual learning opportunity offered through the University of Vermont Extension 4-H program, will help introduce kids to the birds and the bees as well as a number of other species.
The one-hour sessions will be offered bi-weekly on Wednesdays from 9-10 a.m. from Sept. 23 to Nov. 18. Although geared to younger students, anyone aged 8-18 may sign up for any or all sessions. Enrollment in 4-H is not necessary to participate.

Dates and topics are September 23 (bees), October 7 (llamas and alpacas), October 21 (white-tailed deer), November 4 (wild geese) and November 18 (turkeys).
