Nature Study with a Landscaper/Naturalist

We've been resting and enjoying the holidays.

But we were still able to get in some nature fun.

We have a friend that does landscaping and has a degree.
This means...I'm always picking her brain.
She offered to let us go to her house and she'd take us on a nature walk in her woods.

That was too good to pass up. 
We learned so much-
like...
gulls are created in trees by insects, bacteria, or fungus.

This is a berry bush.
Note the color of stem.

 This is the favorite haunt of coyote.
There were deer bones scattered everywhere.

This is a fungus.

Muscle wood

Fern

More fungus and moss.

We also found a rock with 4 different fossils in it.
You'll never guess who got to carry it!

Wishing you homeschool blessings,
Bethany

I wish I had a naturalist that would come and help me in my backyard. I have so many questions and it takes so much time to do research.
I loved seeing all the interesting things in your woods. Thank you for sharing your entry with the OHC.

Lucky you :) Maybe I should look for someone to give us a guided walk!
