The ABCs Of Nature: Educational Exploration For Young Naturalists

Whether you’re at home, in the backyard, or in a nearby park, nature is an ever-ready laboratory and outdoor classroom filled with amazing discoveries and educational experiences for young naturalists. And the ABCs of nature provide an easy launch-pad for early exploration and discovery.

A is for Animal Tracking

Animals leave tracks, trails and signs that tell us about the time, place, and other activities they’ve been up to. Early nature explorers can develop their own tracking skills and become familiar with local animals simply by looking for clues in the natural environment around them.

 

B is for Birdwatching

Birds provide an easy introduction to nature observation and even simple identification skills. Depending on the area, a walk in the local park or nature preserve can soon turn into a lifetime of avian discovery. Along with binoculars, birders also require a good reference book and a bit of patience to identify local species.

C is for Collecting

Leaf and rock collecting can help young naturalists identify plants and animal species while also developing an appreciation for the specific ecosystem they live in. With simple starting materials like magnifying glasses, collecting can lead to a lifetime of scientific and educational exploration.

Educating a New Generation of Naturalists

Nature exploration and education are vital components of a healthy and sustainable environment, and introducing youngsters to the ABCs of nature can provide an early start for the budding naturalist. Teaching children to appreciate the science behind nature provides them with an opportunity to learn, explore, and understand the world around them—a world that we all depend on.
