Laudato Si’ Project held a nature program for the Disciples of Christ Homeschool students and some LSP member families. The nature program’s focus was “Creatures of the Night.” They learned about adaptations of flying squirrels, owls, bats, raccoons and more.
They were several activities and games simulating these adaptations including a bats sense of smell and the tactile ability of raccoons.
They also were able to touch furs and skulls of animals that often call the night their home.
They then visited the resident chickens and even go to catch and hold them. Here is a short video of their experience https://youtu.be/w8m5RZvCquE
Lastly, we took a hike on the neighboring 51 acre Schoofs Preserve, owned by the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. See a short video here: https://youtu.be/nEzlYh0KQHE
