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

Nature Watch- Cozumel, Mexico

(1)This is bouganvillia in our front yard in my very favorite color.
(2)Palm trees poking their heads out of a palmetto jungle on the east side of the island (the wild side). I think they look like the truffula trees in The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.
(3)You can see a double rainbow over the Yucutan Penninsula if you look very hard.
(4)The hole in the sand is a sea turtle nest- the tracks leading to and from the ocean are made by the turtle. The nests are protected by the government.
(5)Can you find the iguana on the branch? We named him Waldo because he's hard to find. He comes out when the sun is high to warm up his body!
