Junior Naturaists now has two groups!
Now Junior Naturalists includes the age groups of 5 to 8 and 9 to 12! Dan Bieker as always will lead the younger group with much able assistance from volunteers. Steve Pullinger and Deborah Andersen, a husband and wife team of a Master Naturalist/ primitive skills instructor and a teacher/outdoor educator will lead the older group. The older group will include regular hikes with creek study, wildlife exploration w/ attention to native vs non-native species and habitats, games to learn environmental concepts, introduction to primitive skills such as shelters and water / food sourcing and nature-based art and service projects. All activities will be conducted outdoors unless severe weather warrants moving indoors, where we will have hands on workshop time as well as view videos related to our study of wildlife, Leave No Trace principles, and nature based art and service projects. Everything starts January 23rd at 4:00 pm at the Education Building.
