This post is almost a week late. I am trying to go on nature walks every Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting of course. Last Wednesday was our first walk and we were collecting leaves to make leaf prints. We looked at the different type of trees that grow on our city block and then played for a couple of hours at the playground. The playground borders the local Indian Reservation. The area right beside the playground has prairie grasses of all kinds. We collected some prairie grass and stuck them in our nature notebook. I have yet to find a reliable source to identify the different prairie grasses. Do you know of a good resource?
Here are some pictures of our day.
