Ms. Lisa has over 30 years of elementary education experience; with 26 years in a 2nd grade classroom. Working with children is her passion. “It brings me joy and fills my heart. Children are so inquisitive and love to learn!” Ms. Lisa is excited to be part of the summer camp program and be able to take children out exploring in a perfect way to learn about and appreciate nature.
Baird Creek has four main ecosystems; prairie, forest, wetland, and creek. Kiddos will hike to each location and dig into the ecosystem’s how, what, and why. They will identify flora & fauna in the prairie areas, identify types of trees & their characteristics, why wetlands are important, what makes the creek flow, and so much more. Habitats/Diversity/Identifying/Mapping!!!
Just like the crayfish in Baird Creek, a day of fun will often include mud, muck, and dirt. Please send an old pair of shoes that are acceptable for walking, hiking, and exploring the creek. We advise that each child comes with a change of clothes each day so that we can send them home dry and keep your car from looking like a nature habitat itself. Each day there will be snack time so please send a snack and a refillable water bottle labeled with your child’s first and last name. We recommend that you also send a small towel for cleaning up and a backpack to carry everything in! On light rain days we advise that your child also bring a plastic poncho; on heavy rain days/stormy days, activities will be held indoor. Every day of summer camp at Baird Creek will involve lots of walking and exploring. Dress your child appropriately and spray on sunscreen before they leave home each day!
