Nature Camp at Tule Ponds (part 1)
CODE:  Tule 01 June 22-26 10am-2pm

(activities will reflect age of students and will be grouped according to their level with instructors and aides) (30 maximum number of students)

Tule Ponds is a jewel in the middle of Fremont.  It was created by the Hayward Fault and the underground aquifers that provide water for Tyson Lagoon.  Come explore the amazing animals that live with us at Tule Pond!  This wildlife sanctuary is home to many vertebrates including frogs, turtles, birds, fish and mammals. Can you find them and their homes? What do they eat? How do they live here? Do they live near your home? Come and explore the trails, meadows, and creeks at Tule Pond. We will  have fun exploring inside and outside. Our hands on science activities are integrated with art, games, songs, and technology - so dress for a mess! Wear comfortable shoes for walking. Information about the day goes home to parents each day along with kid discoveries and creations.  Students will also take part in collecting data and act like a wildlife biologist.

Tule Ponds is a restoration area that was replanted with trees in the last 1990's.  Now it is an urban forest providing large trees as shelter to many native animals.  You will learn all about the trees and how important they are to hold carbon for hundreds of years.  You hear a lot about climate change in the news, but did you know that areas like Tule Ponds helps capture carbon from the air, and can help modifiy the effect of humans.  Learn about chemistry and trees and we act like climate scientists to uncover the science behind saving our enviornment.
