Inspiring exploration, appreciation, and conservation of our natural world.

August 3rd,Fish Finish First

Hi Grown-Ups!

Today was a grand finale to our week of Nature Olympics!  We spent the day learning all about fish.  We made fish hats, went through an obstacle course pretending we were salmon,  and best of all got to sample macro-invertebrates (fish food!) in Jack’s Creek.  We ended the day by making and launching dragonfly rockets – it was super cool! The kids should know about the amazing adaptation that dragonfly nymphs have to protect themselves against predation.

We hope you all had as much fun as we did and hope to see you at future camps and programs here at the Boardman River Nature Center.

Have a wonderful summer!
