A privilege to work with Kindergarten students who took some sand, pebbles, shells and water turned them into...sensory experiences, experiments in floating and absorption, beautiful arrangements and...
|A chance to reconnect with old friends., or make new ones.|
First grade farmers looked for tools, colors, and used their senses to fill out a scavenger hunt sheet. They were then asked to name what surprised them the most. And the answers are:
"Two apples growing together."
"Basil. These leaves are [so] good."
"The big yellow flowers."
"A pumpkin. Or is it a squash?"

|Students connect the trash filled water and recent storm.|
Our portion of the hoped for 1 billion oysters is quite small...around 45 of them. But they are paving the way for more. Our data will be used to determine if our site is a good one to re-establish these water filtering, reef habitat building, flood preventing species. So we were told by John and Ella, two BOP associates.
|They need eco-sausages around here to absorb the stormwater.|
|Ella and John explaining BOP project.|
|John opening oyster cage. Ella was there too.|
|Ella being documented documenting fish found in cage.|
The fish we found was a blackfish: (Tautoga onitis)
|Counting and measuring oysters.|
|Looks like we didn't lose any oysters and each string gained mass.|
|Robert, BNS dad, and scientist helped kids measure water quality|
After measuring kids sieved the water surrounding the cage.
We found anemones, barnacles, newly forming mussels, and amphipods.
|Found evidence of oysters spawning. |
Excited to be "oyster uncles."
