Growing Up Wild: Backbone Bonanza

We participated in this month’s Growing Up Wild class offered through San Antonio Parks and Rec. This month’s topic was Backbone Bonanza. There were educational crafts and a nature walk as a group to try and spot different vertebrates in the park. Rabbits, birds, squirrels, even a gentleman’s very large dog! A small trail was observed crossing our walking path, and we saw footprints in the soft dirt. Off in a clearing the group could clearly see two large deer. It was wonderful!

I’ve talked about Growing Up Wild in the past.  I went to a workshop with several other homeschoolers and took home the curriculum guide. We have been participating up until recently with a small co-op working through the guide. Now that the Parks and Rec folks are offering monthly programs, we are taking advantage of their knowledge and expertise.
