Feathers and Fur
This week’s Outdoor Elements features feathers and fur. Evie tracks sandhill cranes with Fred Wooley, looks for evidence of wolverines and weasels at Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve and follows wild turkeys at Crane Pond.
It’s a look at natural history on this episode of Outdoor Elements. Watch the process Native Americans used to make maple sugar, take a walk to explore the natural history of cemeteries and find out the significance to St Joseph County street names
Kids on the Move
Evie joins a group of middle school students on a swamp stomp, learns how high school kids are biologically restoring a shoreline and finds out how art and science go together.
Science at Work
We go birding from the tower at the Indiana Dunes State Park, we learn about bats from netting them with a wildlife biologist and we take a plant inventory and find out what a square can tell us about the habitat.
This week we visit the magnificent walk-through sculpture, made of twigs of willow and dogwood. Then we'll have tea with Gail Martin to talk about some books that are all about plants. We'll learn how to make a reed pen and ink with natural materials.
