museum bioblitz 2015This June the Berkshire Museum held a small bioblitz at Onota Lake with Egermont Elementary School students. It was a great day, lots of collecting and sharing. The weather was perfect the kids were well behaved and the teachers were great to work with in the field. Thanks to Joann Batman for inviting Dr. Augie’s to participate.

sun screen experimentMarcus read to us about the suns UV rays and why we should protect ourselves from too much sun. To test this we did a simple sunscreen experiment using Sunprint paper pdf here to see what strength of sunscreen works best, but our results were: the spray kind doesn’t work very well.

Nature and Writing Summer Camp

great spangled frittilaryWe checked out the space for our summer camps this week. Out in the meadow we saw this beauty.

Our Nature & Writing summer camp takes place at St. Mark’s School in Pittsfield, MA August 4-8, 2014 and is run by experienced adult educators and professionals. The camp runs 9am to 1:30pm Cost $175 or $35/day.

Students will go on daily guided nature hikes, where we’ll explore the terrain and examine different kinds of local plant and animal life. Afterwards, everyone adjourns to the classroom to write a fictional story based on some of the flora and fauna we encountered that day. Additionally will meet Mr. Horace Franklin Turtle, bunnies, and other live animals as we learn about invasive and native species. Ages 7-12.

While we do our best to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness at all times, we give students a very hands on approach, and sometimes that gets messy.
