Friday Field Study: 8:35 am – 12:00 pm (ideally 3-4 parents each FFS and why not stay and help with lunch since you’re already on campus?)

If you have a flexible work schedule, or just want some much needed time in nature, please consider joining us for Friday Field Studies. It is difficult to conduct meaningful field studies as a full class of 24 students. Having additional parents along allows the class to break into smaller study groups, which are much more conducive to careful scientific observation, wildlife sightings, and developing a sense of connection to nature. Ideally, volunteers will commit to a trimester at a time, so that students can become accustomed to their group, and spend less time sorting out social dynamics and more time making scientific discoveries.
