Return to Events Calendar

Time:  1-3 PM
Place:  Unity, NH - Sullivan County Complex, County Farm Rd., Eco Ag Center (Gardens), Marshall Pond Trailhead, and Ahern Building - see schedule for meeting location each week.

Do you want to learn how to explore and investigate the natural world like a scientist?  This 6 week series will help you learn what scientist do by participcating in field studies and creating your own field study.  We will use scientific practices to study things like spider webs, lichen, pond critters, and butterflies.  It is amazing how much there is to discover and learn outdoors when you know how to observe, question, investigate and reflect.  Dawn Dextraze, Sullivan County Natural Resources Education and Outreach Specialist will be leading this series.

Who:  Ages 8 and up

When:  Tuesday afternoons from 1-3pm starting Sept. 4 and ending Oct 16.  There will be no class on Sept. 25th.  Please be on time!

Where:  Sullivan County Complex, County Farm Rd. Unity, NH - Eco Ag Center (Gardens), Marshall Pond Trailhead, and Ahern Building - see schedule for meeting location each week.

How to be prepared:  Make sure to be prepared for the weather (rain jackets, boots, bug spray, sunscreen, hat, etc).  It is a good idea to wear pants, closed-toe shoes (sneakers are fine) and bring a long sleeved shirt and plenty of water.  Also, please bring a blank journal (a composition book is fine) in a Ziploc bag with a pencil and your sense of wonder.  All other supplies will be provided.

Registration Required:  Contact Billie Lambdin, Common Vision CSAA, commonvisioncsaa@gmail.com.  We will accept new students until Sept. 18th.
