Come to the next in our “Catch the bug for nature with grand-kids” series! While grandparents and grand-kids are the target audience, everyone, all ages and stages, are welcome! Remember, we are all grand-kids, and our inner child just needs a bit of stimulation from nature to wake up! And while we will bring bug nets and other tools for catching and examining our fascinating bug community, we will turn our focus to any plant, animal or fungus that piques our curiosity, from an Osprey or Eagle to the fragrant and striking Pacific Mock Orange blooms that one of the Lorquin’s Admiral butterflies we may be stalking alights upon, to one of the Western Terrestrial Garter Snakes that still makes Seward Park its home.
We will incorporate an element of stewardship, by each learning an alien invader weed, pulling one, and stomping on it, to give the embattled and increasingly rare members of the indigenous natural community more space.
Meet at the far end of the first parking lot (the one near shelter #2) in the inner car loop road inside Seward Park.
I will share my binoculars and nets, but if you have a binoculars or a preferred net, you can bring them. Dress for a bit of time off of the trail, and if it has been raining for some spots that may be a bit wet.
Meet at the first parking lot (the one near shelter #2) off of the inner car loop road (“Seward Park Rd”), inside Seward Park.
Please RSVP (to firstname.lastname@example.org or 206 932-7225), if you can, to give me a contact list if I were ever to need to cancel, and to allow me to estimate group size, and plan additional sessions if group seems it will be large, but if you haven’t RSVP’d, just show up!
Feel free to call or e-mail if you have questions.
Everyone, of any age or knowledge stage is guaranteed to learn something and have a fun time building community with other nature enthusiasts and with our local community of plants, animals and fungi.
