Our project has had its ups and downs. Here are three favorites:
FAIL: THESE ARE NOT ALLOWED IN YOUR TREES. The class has spent weeks developing interpretive educational components of the outdoor classroom. Trees were to be tagged with cards showing information about their species, and birds were going to be mounted in branches for a “bird scavenger hunt.” Today we discovered that attaching things to trees is illegal in Boulder.
WIN: the grass we planted on the mounds has been thriving and is quickly growing its way through the jute covering.
WIN: this fluffy squirrel posed for a photo during a site reconnaissance mission.
