River Spies Spring 2015


Welcome Edison River Spies!
I will be leading a 7 week session of River Spies this spring that will be entirely field based. We will meet on Fridays from 2:45-4:45pm from April 3rd to May 29th. We will not meet on May 1st or May 8th. Registration is open to Edison 1st through 3rd graders. 
To obtain a registration form contact me: deb_rosenthal@hotmail.com

Besides collecting water quality data and surveying for macroinvertebrates, we will incorporate bird surveys along Amazon Creek. We will touch upon food webs and explore the connectivity of organisms in fresh water habitats. As in the past, the group will decide on an action project designed to improve our local ecosystem.

WE WILL GET WET & DIRTY. As a general habit, please have your River Spy wear clothes/shoes that can get muddy and bring rain gear (jacket & boots) to school.

Keep checking this blog for pictures, updates, and links. I am looking forward to reporting more about our young sleuths' discoveries!
