Finding and Identifying Bones, Feathers, Shells, Etc.

In this experience we will learn how to search for bones, feathers, and other natural objects in our city parks and beyond. I will bring my box of bones, feathers, and other natural treasures for us to look at. We will also discuss how to identify what we are looking at and play a game of "Guess the Animal" by trying to identify various skulls.

To explore this experience together, we can...: Deer and bird skulls, bones, feathers, shells, rocks, and wood
-: Searching for objects in the forest, using senses to explore and find
-: A new sense of attentiveness in nature, how to research found objects, and some philosophy around mortality
