Be a Hummingbird: Biology & Ecology
February 10 @ 9:45 am – 3:00 pm EST
In this one-day workshop, we’ll be learning about the inspirational Kenyan ecologist, Wangari Maathai, & her work in the Greenbelt movement.
We’ll end the day dissecting a virtual or real owl pellet, identifying bones & observing what owls eat. It’s a great introduction to food webs, & animal habitats, the science of ecology & our connection to nature and the world around us.
|10 am – |
|Games & Introductions|
Coping skills for kids and scientists. We will be learning how to ground ourselves and observe. Grounding is a great skill for any scientist to use. By bringing your attention to your surroundings through your senses, you take a moment to intentionally notice what you see.
