These events are posted for you to experience science/nature outside the classroom.  I cannot take you to these places myself, but you can enjoy them with your family and friends.  If you want to earn extra credit just have someone take a picture of you doing whatever the event is about and write a paragraph about your event.  Please enjoy yourself and you might see me out there with my daughter enjoying myself!  Mrs. Young
