Natural Observers
 
 
 
"After listening to the podcast, I asked my 2 yr old boy if he would be interested in observing something. He replied 'dump truck.' Knowing this was one of his favorite things to observe in the mornings of trash day we did just that. 
His observations were: (1) the truck is loud, (2) the truck is BIG, and (3) the trash stinks."
 - Kevin T. 

 

 
"I have to admit I didn't realize I've been so dedicated to this "project." I never knew what I would do with the data.
It just became a habit of checking every day." - Brenda
 
Gall Experiment
 
 
"And in trying laboriously to match them up to field classification guides, only 2 species seem to have edible fruit. So I guess we know that the Pacific Northwest is absolutely bustling with eye-catching fruit-bearing plants,
but when it comes to a hiking snack, better pack your own." - Natalie
