Peninsula March 15th, 2010 Palo Alto Baylands

Hello Peninsula Trekkers!
What a gorgeous week we had last week at Palo Alto Baylands! I was sooo happy to have some warm, sunny weather - and know you were enjoying it to! We began our day looking at birds in front of the Nature Center - we spotted Coots, American Avocets, Egrets, Black-necked Stilts, and several geese and ducks. After circle time, we had a great walk down the path toward the Palo Alto airport. We stopped to find ladybugs along the way - most of the kids loved having the ladybugs crawl on their hands, and those who didn't want to hold them still loved finding them on the plants and watching their friends hold them. We continued on our walk, finding lizards, ants and more birds along the way. We stopped at the airport and watched several planes take off and land (so exciting!!) before heading back to the nature center for snack. We munched on Tiny Treks Trail Mix (pretzels, cheerios, dried fruit, almonds and sunflower seeds) then had a great time making fish and fishing poles during craft time. We also celebrated "T" week by talking about Tiny Treks and what great Trekkers we all are, counting to Two, Three and Ten, Touching our Toes and roaring like Tigers.

I hope you are all enjoying the start of Spring. See you next week!
