Map Enrichment Programs says: Wood Sorrel Forest School is off to a running start!
A little glimpse into the Magic of Forest School: An encounter with a spider, tears and big feelings, led to an impromptu circle time story about a spider busy building her web. Because our school is also a farm, a rooster just happened to crow as we flipped the page to find a rooster asking the spider “want to catch a pesky fly?!” On cue a fly buzzed right through our circle! The magic continued as we wondered what we might see or hear on our nature walk - children suggested a bird or a squirrel and sure enough just then we hear from the trees, “checheche!” and “tweet tweet!” <whispers> “did you hear that?!” Pure wonder and anticipation ...
So off we ran to find the next adventure!

Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife announces:
WDFW schedules tentative razor clam digs through December.
Based on beach surveys conducted this summer, WDFW estimates the total razor clam population on most Washington's beaches has increased significantly from last season, which means more days of digging this season. The exception is Long Beach, an area that is recovering after a decline in clam survival due to low salinity in winter 2017.
