On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, Drumlin Farm will come to LEAP. The Teacher Naturalist has sent me a blurb about herself, as well as about the program she will teach. We are all so excited and feel lucky to have such a cool program coming to visit us!
I will be teaching a Native New England: Connecting People, Land and Wildlife program to two groups of children from 2:00-3:00 (grades K-2) and 3:00-4:00 (grades 2-3). I have been working at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm for over 5 years as a Teacher Naturalist. My work includes teaching a variety of programs at Drumlin Farm as well as doing outreach to schools, libraries, and local festivals. I love working with all the animals, especially the birds of prey such as the hawks and owls. In the Native New England program I will be presenting at LEAP, I will be introducing the children to ways in which Native Americans lived and interacted with nature. The children will explore Native American artifacts, hear a Native American story, play a Native American game, and meet a couple of wild animal ambassadors from Drumlin Farm.
