Ms. Pat's Nature Club

Ms. Pat's Nature Club is a blog for anyone who is a nature nut and loves nature, no matter what age you are. I hope you will let me know what you think and give me feedback. I love to hear from my friends!

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
-Albert Einstein

"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you."
-Frank Lloyd Wright

"Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, It was loaned to you by your children"

-Native American proverb

"Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events in their lives."

-Thomas Berry, Dream of the Earth

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, the excitement and mystery of the world we live in."
-Rachel Carson, A Sense of Wonder

Critter Watch

A doe with two fawns was in our horse pasture yesterday morning. The fawns were dancing and jumping around like crazy things. I think they must have felt good!

Critter Watch

This morning I saw a mother wild turkey and her seven babies. The babies all ran out of the road when they saw my car, but the mom stood in the road watching me for a few minutes.

Critter Watch

We have Sandhill Cranes in our horse pasture! You can hear them clacking before you see them. There are two large grey adults and one smaller reddish young crane.
