Calling young naturalists! Is your child always asking questions about the natural things they observe around them? In this Ventura Wild program, we will explore our local natural areas and discover which plants and animals live nearby and how they are a part of our community. We will also learn the basics about our local climate, geology, and water cycle! We will use tools of naturalists like binoculars, field guides, hand lenses, compasses, and sketching books to help us with our observations. In addition to intentional nature study, we will create connection through games, skill building, and play. Children will receive a Naturalist’s Notebook and can earn achievement badges (not required) This class would be great for children with some previous outdoor education or Ventura Wild experience who are curious and eager to learn more about natural history!
