Searching the stream for crayfish and fossils at Baird Creek
“What do you know about your environment? Who lived here? Why do you suppose the ground is wet here? Why are all of the plants small here? What cause these rocks to have these bands? Notice that smell? How come there are no plants here? When did these rocks form?”

These are some of the simple questions the youth learn to ask about their environments. Whether they’re walking through the woods, along a beach, or someday on the surface of the Moon – the aim of the Environmental Exploration programs are to teach the children to ask questions and take notice of their surroundings.
