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

Happy Earth Day! The daffodils are blooming and so are the dandelions. The lilacs have buds; the loons are back and calling in the morning. My hostas are beginning to peek out of the ground. Spring is always lovely, but it's especially sweet when it comes early, as it has this year. The chill in the air this morning (it was only 40) reminds us that we still live in Minnesota and we shouldn't get complaisant.
