We are adjusting the "ECO Navigators" program grade levels slightly next year. Our NEW program will be for children in 6th-9th grade.
If you are interested in your child joining the ECO program in Fall 2020 we highly recommend attending a trial class. We will run the trial class like a typical ECO day, however we ask that parents stay close by so you can also see how a typical day looks (our semester/yearly program will be drop off). You may bring older or younger siblings, just know this class will be geared towards 5th-9th grade. We will bring some activities to occupy younger siblings.
For this class students will be learning about famous naturalists of AZ and how to use historic journals to understand wildlife. In order to truly understand the status of wildlife today, it helps to be familiar with their historic populations and ranges. To do this, biologists and historians need to rely heavily on the journals and writings of Arizona's earliest explorers. Yet, these resources can be inconsistent and unreliable. Through hands on activities students will delve into and decipher some of these writings, learn more about nature journaling and learn about several famous naturalists who explored AZ.
Please allow about 4 hrs for this class. There will be a lunch break.
