It's only been two weeks out of four into our Act to Nature summer camp with Winchester Cultural Center and Get Outdoors Nevada is loving every moment of it!
For the past two weeks, we have been teaching students about our beautiful Mojave desert, the animals that live here, plant adaptations as well as ethnobotany. We visited Desert National Wildlife Refuge twice! On our second field trip, we worked with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Spencer Lodge, an archeologist to learn more about the tools that Native American used such as the bedrock mortar and the metate.
Thank you U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Desert National Wildlife Refuge Complex, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and Winchester Cultural Center for helping Get Outdoors Nevada provided experiences like these. We also express our gratitude to one of our own, Bertha Gutierrez, for her art expertise😍. Thank you!
Act to Nature is a unique and immersive summer program for kids aged 8-12. Our partnership with Winchester Cultural Center allows participants to experience science, dance, theatre and visual arts through the environmental scope of nature. ... ExpandSee Less
