Calling all young naturalists! Is your child always asking questions about the natural things they observe around them? In Ventura Wild we explore local natural areas and discover which plants and animals live nearby and how they are part of our community. We also learn the basics of climate, geology, and the water cycle! We use naturalist tools like binoculars, field guides, hand lenses, compasses, and sketch 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!
