So these are our Earth Scouts. http://www.earthscouts.org/.
Our first assignment was a project called, Urban birds
we met a nearby park and we had some books read by other members about birds and then we went on our excursion to site some urban birds. We had our lists and our binoculars.
Ok bird lookers let's go!!
Well first let's cross the bridge. Ok ok climb on the bridge, Oh that is cool waterfall. Yup it certainly is a good place to play pooh sticks.
Wait wait..no no no swimming. Please don't climb down so close.
Come on Earth scouters we have birds to find!
We do finally get the kids away from the bridge and off into the trail
Ooo look horses.
