Saturday Nature Day for 3rd - 5th Grade
10:00 – 2:00 at the historic Wagner Ranch Nature Area
Students will have outdoor learning experiences exploring creeks and ponds, and finding native plants and animal species that have lived in Orinda for hundreds of years. Investigative themes include: ecology of woodland and stream, cultural history of the area, including native stories and games, earth science, and garden projects. The emphasis is hands-on-learning in a natural environment.
Students must: wear a mask, bring a refillable water bottle, a snack and a bag lunch, and agree to maintain a distance of 6 feet from other students. They should apply sunscreen before arriving, and wear “camping worthy” clothing and shoes (no sandals) that may get wet or dirty.
Each student is limited to one date, with a maximum of 7 students/day. Due to space limitations, we regret parents, young children and pets are not invited. The program will run for four Saturdays: October 24, 31, and November 7, 14. Enrollment is on a first come basis.
An optional $25 donation per student, payable to the Friends of the Wagner Ranch Nature Area will partially cover the costs of Nature Teachers and supplies for the day. Any additional donation will be deeply appreciated by FWRNA, which is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit/social profit. www.fwrna.org
Students are to be dropped off to meet their Naturalist teacher at the main entrance to the Nature Area at 10am. Their parent permission form (mandatory for all students) and any donations will be collected at the main gate when the student is signed in.
For questions about sign-ups contact Kathy Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support of the Nature Area.
Nature Day is not an Orinda Union School District sponsored program.
