I take families and groups on walks on our town's Land Trust Preserves. I would appreciate any ideas for fun things to do on a nature walk. Thanks

Maryanne, I would try the botanic gardens which deal exclusively with native plants and are often interested and able to provide interesting educational programs for the kids. A few such sites could involve these gardens: Rancho Santa Botanic Garden in Claremont (Socal). Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. East bay regional parks dept. (especially Tilden Botanic Garden). I would be suprised if one of these fine institutions did not have some good information for you. Best wishes-Dan

Hi Maryann,

I like to show kids Mimulus pollination dynamics asking them to pretend I am a bee. I know that causes some likelihood of flowers not getting pollinated appropriately but the plants are very common in the canyons where I hike. It gets them thinking about the relationship between plants and insects and educates about flower parts.
