Nature – It cannot be dulled and flattened into textbooks. To learn it means getting out there and experience it first hand.
To feel the textures of tree bark, to see the colors of lichen on rocks, to hear the bird calls, smell the flowers and to taste the wild herbs – East Bay LORe gives your children the opportunity to put all of these and much more into the context of the State of California Science Curriculum.
In this age of information downpour, when knowledge of Nature is accessible from every corner of our world and environmental concerns are of global scale, Earth is summarized, edited and flattened into textbooks, films and internet sites to be readily downloaded into our minds.
