A day of learning and birding

13 Mar

Elkhorn Slough

I’m getting to go hang out here today at my favorite place to bird:  Elkhorn Slough.  I am going to an all day teacher training which prepares me to bring field trips here.  My goal is to teach my kids about birding with an end of the year trip to Elkhorn Slough.  I’m so excited!  We’re having beautiful weather.  In fact, I need to make sure I remember my sunblock!

Gotta go pack . . . it’s an early day!

Oh, and thank you, everyone for all the kind words. It has been a crazy week but unlike many teachers in California, I’m still employed.  Greg gets home from Boston tomorrow night and life will go on!  Crazy weeks, or no.

    Hi there Liza,

    This post takes me back to the days when I used to take my class out on excursions or week long camps here in South Australia. I’d always make sure there was a birding element to the program. The vast majority of children are really keen to learn more about birds and are quick learners. Keep up the good work and all the best.

    Oh what fun. Just think the experience might make some of those kids into life-long birders or certainly life-long bird enjoyers. That’s a great use of resources for a field trip.

    Inhale deeply, exhale slowly, and have a beautiful day there my friend. :c)

    Yay–for you. I was thinking about you all day.
    And still sad for all the CA teachers who are not still employed.

    Oh Liza, I thought of you when I read KGMom’s post. I hope you will still be employed to teach. It’s so difficult right now for so many here in California. Think positive thoughts. BTW, that’s a cool shot of the barn there at Elkhorn Slough. It looks like you were up in elevation from where you took that shot.
