I accidentally came upon an almanac website for our area (connected to NPR) that is an absolute goldmine for nature information for our location. The children and I listened to two radio shows this morning before school and compiled a list of Signs of Late Summer to identify for in our woods and our favorite beaches. I plan on using this nature show often as part of our science curriculum. I wish that I had found this resource sooner!
Signs of Late Summer
warm ocean swims
twilight beach bonfires
northern bobwhite quails
devil's walking stick
joe pye weed
spice bush swallowtails
Wonderful! I'll have to check out our local NPR and see if they have something similar.
I've been a new reader to your blog and am making my way through the archives. I had to smile at this post as this is something I do out of personal habit: list all the seasonal changes I notice. I like to look back and see if things happened around the same time as the year before. It gives a depth and richness to daily life when you keep your eyes open!
My best to you and your family.
