Description

Adventures in Community Science is one part nature journal and one part call to action

From the estuaries of the East Coast, to the urban rivers of our cities, to the backyards throughout North America, Adventures in Community Science shares the surveys and studies of young community scientists who are dedicated to exploring nature, collecting data, and helping to protect the natural world.

With field notes, pack lists, and natural history on a diversity of species, readers follow along with this group of kids as they explore wetlands, meadows, woodlands, and beaches documenting their adventures.

These studies will inspire readers ages 8-12 to engage with the natural world through hands-on project-based exploration. Readers will learn how to collect meaningful data while helping to protect species and ecosystems in their own backyards.

Projects include:
- Horseshoe Crab Rescue
- Night Lights (Firefly Activity)
- Finding Frogs
- Mystery Mussel
- Lanternflies Have Landed
- The Great Shorebird Migration
- SOS--Save Our Spiders

Science education has become increasingly important in our world and this how-to project-based learning approach will have readers examining the natural world around them.
