B Street Trail Field Study

Whales tried out their skills in ornithology, entomology and dendrology on Friday as we walked together to B Street Trail. Once there, students split into five groups and performed BioBlitz activities in open grassy areas, and in the branches of trees; tallying and identifying various arthropods. In another group, students practiced their bird watching skills; identifying a wide range of songbirds and raptors. Using their skills in dendrology; students identified, photographed and sketched various leaves and trees native to the Northwest. When we were tired and thirsty, we ate snack together in the sun. It was a day replete with good friends, gorgeous weather and scientific investigation!
