August's Camp Explore is now underway at the Center, generously funded by BamaWorks, the charitable foundation of the Dave Matthews Band. The children have been doing art projects, exploring the outdoors, and getting their feet wet in the river. We've been seeing tadpoles and frogs, dragonflies--and honking v's of geese. Today they got a wonderful introduction to nature journaling and to the nature observation games of Joseph Cornell thanks to local educator Eileen Merritt, whom the Center met through a Chesapeake Bay Foundation workshop. More on all this later! We have many more activities planned, including making drums out of recycled materials.
