In this 6-week series we will investigate the streams, wetlands, and vernal pools found on the sanctuary, discussing why maintaining a healthy watershed is so important and how certain species of plants and animals thrive in different aquatic habitats. Using simple tools such as yard sticks, stop watches and measuring tape, we will calculate the speed and volume of water that moves through Broad Meadow Brook and investigate the link between water and climate change solutions.
Broad Meadow Brook's homeschool programs offer a friendly, cooperative learning environment for people of all ages! Our homeschool programs are designed for the homeschooling family. At the end of all programs, students will receive follow-up information and activities so the learning can continue at home.
This program will be conducted in accordance with current municipal, state, and Mass Audubon Covid-19 protocols. This program will meet and take place outdoors. Masks or face coverings are required for activities where participants need to move inside or during close contact outside. There will be opportunities for mask breaks as needed. A detailed confirmation letter will be emailed 24 hours before the program.
Health forms are required for drop off students. Families are always welcome to remain on the sanctuary.
Nature Adventures for 5-7-year olds and teen homeschool classes meet at the same time most weeks.
We look forward to learning with you!
