Poetry Hike! Beyond the Beaten Path

Let's get outdoors for this year's Summer Reading Program theme: Beyond the Beaten Path. On each of these hikes, we will meet at a different local nature preserve to share poems, conversation, and an appreciation for the natural world. You may bring favorite poems (nature poems may be particularly well suited!) or original poems to share. We'll stop at regular intervals to listen to one another's poems. Sharing is not required to attend, but appreciated! You must register to attend each hike separately.

15 Minute Field Trips™ presents Ant Detectives & the Worm Cafe!

Wednesday, June 29 @ 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM

Look closely! Ants are everywhere and we hardly notice! Using hoops and string, we'll look from an ant's point of view and tally up behaviors we observe. We will then create an underground treasure map with tunnels, worms, and more creatures hidden underground. Explore the mysteries of ant behavior with 15 Minute Field Trips! 

We'll take 30 minutes to learn behavior like foraging, communication, preening, carrying, herding, farming, fighting, and swarming and go on an ant behavior scavenger hunt. Stick around to create menus for the worm cafe and talk with deep underground jazz worm, Blind Lemon Nightcrawler.

15 Minute Field Trips™ offers hands-on education programs at the intersection of art, community action, and the natural world. We believe art is an especially effective motivator of environmental advocacy. When we observe art in nature, and create art from nature, we develop a unique sense of unity with and protectiveness over the environment. 15 Minute Field Trips harnesses this philosophy in its in-person training sessions, designed to instill in students and families an appreciation for the outdoors, and empower them as environmental activists.
