Living here in Montana, spring comes a little later! We have been enjoying this bee book, waiting to complete some of the #savingbees projects. The dust jacket of this book made a hive (next photo) for mason bees. Earlier this month we also assembled a bee bath next to our bee balm! This book by @lynnbrunelle is so fun! We learned so much, and are adding it to our stack of books she has written (we also have Camp Out and a science project book! We’re doing our part to save bees from extinction which will also cause problems for our food systems. Get this book! I’ll report back on if we get any visitors. Thank you, @workmanpub for this awesome book!! #savebees 🐝 #scienceoutside#lifelonglearners
Partnerships allow graduate students to conduct research on our lands and allow elementary students to visit with real scientists. 5th graders from Milton Elementary School in Laredo participated in another successful Field Lesson at the San Antonio Viejo Ranch. Aside from talking about ocelots and prescribed fire, graduate students taught elementary students about recording field journals, Monarch butterfly migration, food webs, and the importance of balanced wildlife habitat.

A whimbrel chick sits up and wanders out of the nest on its first day of life in the Canadian subarctic. These adorable balls of fluffy down weigh about $1.25 in quarters. They double their body weight weekly before navigating—unguided by adults—to the mangroves of northeast Brazil!

Thank you to @docusign volunteers who made a positive impact on our outdoor classroom at Alvarado Elementary School today! Achieving an outdoor classroom environment that is updated, effective, and enjoyable is a huge benefit to Education Outside and our students. #alvaradoworkday
Students at Selby Lane Elementary identified leaves, herbs, and flowers they gathered on their garden classroom floor to build beautiful forest wreaths with instructor Veronica 🌼 This outdoor classroom is part of a dual EO plan to expand impact to San Mateo and deepen impact in San Francisco.
