Plymouth County Conservation Naturalist Victoria DeVos presented a free nature program, “Have Nature, Will Travel”, to six children at Beck Park on Friday, July 6 from 1-2:30 p.m.
Pictured above, the group learns how to use their GPS (Global Positioning System) device so they can start geocaching.
These two girls find one of the six stickers on their geocaching adventure. Geocaching, as Victoria DeVos explained, "It's like treasure hunting except you use satellites that are going around the earth and this GPS device. This device is going to tell you where I hid things in the park."Ā¯
Children got a chance to use some fishing poles and fish for big plastic fish at Beck Park.
Cut-outs of different types of birds were put on trees at Beck Park. The children then used their binoculars to find these birds and then look at a sheet with pictures of different birds to figure out what bird they just saw. These two girls find a bluebird in their bird watching adventure.
