Behind our house in the middle of the city is a ravine. If you walk down the running trail behind our house, you are transported from urban life to a forest environment that is both surprising and refreshing. When it rains, the ravine fills with water and creates a trickling brook.
Tips for a Successful Science Nature Walk
- Bring a magnifying glass, bug catcher, digging tools, small plastic bottles for collecting specimens, binoculars, and a camera.
- Wear appropriate clothing for the scene.
- Bring bug spray and sunscreen.
- Know where you are at all times.
