When I was in elementary school, I always wished we had an after school science program like the one in Dixon. The Embudo Valley Library’s after school program is absolutely fantastic, and last week we were fortunate enough to head that way and help the kids learn about the Embudo River.
We went on a hike to identify life forms, learned how to use compasses and GPS units, and collected and identified benthic macroinvertebrates. While we didn’t have much time before parents came and collected their kids, we made great strides in learning about riparian ecosystems.
We were really impressed by the students both days that we visited Dixon, and we look forward to working with them in the future. Keep up the good work, Embudo Valley Library!
