Sign-up Day

Date: July 1st 2015
Time:  1:00pm- 3:00pm
Location: Manlius Library


Today was focused around engaging kids and their guardians to spark an interest and inform them about the “How to be a Naturalist” program. We had a table set up in the children’s section of the library with a variety of materials to show what this program is and how to sign up for it. On and hanging around the stand we had informative posters and topographic maps of the region, as well as other educational (and fun!) materials on the other elements involved with this project. One of the most popular parts of our display was the aquatic macroinvertebrates that were being preserved in small jars. Kids of all ages came to the table to check out these cool critters. There was approximately 51 children that stopped by our stand, 8 of these children that were interested were in the age group set for this program (middle school age range), and several of these were interested in this programming continuing on a monthly schedule into the future.
