Animals live secret lives all around us, though most of us go through our busy days without even noticing what’s right under our noses.  Nature Observation/ animal tracking is both science and storytelling, requiring us to critically observe and gather data as well as use our imaginations to interpret the signs we find.

In this fall series, we will practice the skills necessary to become better trackers and observers.  Each month will focus on a different topic.  Our September class will cover animal tracks (footprints) and trails.

This class will have both indoor and outdoor activities.  We will follow current COVID guidelines.

Please register by September 2

Location: Flag Ponds Nature Park

Naturalist in charge: Tania Gale

Homeschool Fridays is a series of environmental education programs developed especially for homeschoolers ages 4 to 12. These classes are a great way to get hands-on science and nature lessons and network with other homeschooling families. Each two-hour program will consist of indoor and outdoor hands-on learning

There is no charge for parents since they are expected to participate as mentors and teachers. Staff will provide guidance for parents on how to assist.

Siblings younger than 4 are welcome, but must be under the care of a parent/guardian at all times and should not distract the program participants.

Older and younger students will be grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate topic exploration (parents will stay with the younger group).
