Trees, Leaves, and Bark

Walk with your children, and when they find leaves, take a very few home (the worms need them, you know) and try this tree identification guide which really works well:

We just returned from a wonderful nature walk.  Today we decided to turn a different way on the nature path behind us, which connects to 35 miles of biking and hiking trails (The 3Rivers Park District in MN).  The different way was such a wonderful adventure and we saw new things today, including a muskrat.  Why hadn’t we walked that way before?  And, we learned we are only about half a mile from the local Arboretum, which we thought was further away because it is by driving.

Have fun outdoors, Carolyn

    I just found this site. I feel I have won a lottery. WOW! It is just what I have been looking for. Thank you for supplying such a literature rich, activity backed, incredible site for free. You know teachers need this. I think I should shout it out everywhere possible. I want to do all within the correct guidelines. Am I allowed to set this on a webpage for parents to check up on. I am going to share it with my local library too. I thank you for the work that you are doing within this site.

      I appreciate your enthusiasm for my site. Share with parents and whomever you would like. Everything free will stay free and I add items each week. I’m glad you see what I am intending, to be helpful. Please check out the main site, too, (also free). Thanks so much, Carolyn
