Back by popular demand! The Environmental Volunteers invites 3rd through 5th grade youth to take part in the Junior Naturalist program, an interactive, hands-on, natural science education series at the newly restored EcoCenter in the Palo Alto Baylands.
The Junior Naturalist program is a series of four classes taking place every Wednesday, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., beginning October 16 and ending Nov. 6. This is not a drop-in program; students will attend all four sessions.
Students in the Junior Naturalist program learn about Baylands ecology, bird science, marine science, and early California Indians. Over the course of the program, students have the opportunity to catch and study fish and invertebrates from the San Francisco Bay, build a fire using traditional methods, meet live birds of prey, and participate in many other hands-on activities. All Junior Naturalists receive a t-shirt, nature merit pins, along with other materials we will make during the program.
Junior Naturalist launched in January 2013, and was such a success, that an additional session was held in May. Thanks to all who participated! To hear what people are saying about Junior Naturalist, click here.
