Up on the Pumpkin Walk at the Hardwick Trails behind Hazen Union High School! A sweet story about the moon. Perfect for a little evening walk before bedtime. Maybe in jammies. But also good in the day when the woods are lovely, dark, and deep.
This story is courtesy of the Greensboro Free Library collection and will be up until early October.
The kits are designed to be used with the Watershed Explorer Challenge published by Watershed Alliance, a Lake Champlain Sea Grant Partnership with UVM Extension and SUNY Plattsburgh. These are included in both kits if you don't already have a copy!
Kit 1 (pictured) focuses on watersheds and is designed to be used at home. It includes a 3D watershed model, a topographical map of the Lake Champlain watershed, a spray bottle, "pollution" to add, 3 books, and a booklet. This kit is designed to give families the opportunity to explore our watershed-- with hands-on science activities and use scientific methods and equipment to conduct water quality field assessments.
Kit 2 (pictured here with Lisa the Librarian) includes a kick net with poles, a small dip net, thermometer, stop watch and tools for measuring water flow, loupe magnifiers, turbidity tube, trays and tools for observing macro-invertebrates, a clipboard and pen, chemical paper with pH scale, test tubes with chemical tabs, disposable gloves, a chemical waste bottle, 2 pairs of safety glasses, and 3 books all in one lightweight backpack!
