Notes on Nature


Each day’s activities will focus on different parts of, and what we find within the Park, such as, insects, birds, water, weather, or trees. They will be expected to take careful notes, make sketches, and collect samples–asking questions, and discovering answers. Campers will assemble their own scientific collecting tools, and use them to explore. They will spend time in the de Young tower, writing origin myths, or on Strawberry Hill searching for birds and imagining a day in their lives. While mapping trails through the park they will be learning about character and language, and then, with all they have collected, they will write Odes to nature. Wrapping up the week with their very own Weather Report.
