Good afternoon ELCers!!
This will be the last blog post for this semester at least! Happy Birthday shout out to our staff member, Abe!
This past weekend we had an aid booth at the Colorado Marathon; way to go to all the runners out there! Y’all are awesome!
On Wednesday we ended GASP! with the last class where the girls got to be junior rangers! We then moved to the party for the girls and their families. The girls got their certificates and said farewell. But not for long; GASP! will be back next semester in full swing. However, in the fall, we will be at two different schools and in the spring, we will be back at Harris. That night we also had a Webolo Den come out to the ELC for their Naturalist Badge. Even through the pouring rain, we talked about wetlands, litter, the food web, and birds! It was a lot of fun and the Webolos enjoyed seeing the beaver dam.
This week we also had a series of preschoolers come from United Methodist. On Wednesday we talked about the parts of insects and why they are important for a garden. Yesterday we discussed animals and their tracks. This morning we talked about the 5 senses and how you can experience them in nature. Overall, it was a really cool program and the kids really liked going out on the trails!
That’s it for now! Make sure to sign up for GSE’s next semester and visit the ELC this summer! I can’t wait to be back in nature and be at the ELC. See y’all soon and have a great summer!
