Nature Explorations

Highlights:Life Underground
At first, the idea of life underground may seem impossible. It is dark, damp and surrounded by dirt. Yet, many creatures, including ants, worms, and moles call the underground their home for all or part of their lives. We see and admire trees, but we see only part of them. Underground, their roots interact in fascinating ways. Many creatures live their lives in caves without ever seeing the light of day. Some bacteria live inside of rocks, and over 400 lakes are deep underground in Antarctica. We will explore these many facets of the underground biosphere.

For young audiences we will focus on familiar creatures such as ants, worms, and moles. Older audiences will enjoy a tour of the entire range of underground life.

MicroWorlds (Available April-October)
Discover the hidden world in a drop of pond water and other micro marvels. We use photographs and illustrations to preview the expedition ahead, then we journey into the microscopic world with live microscopic images projected on a screen for easy group viewing. I use real microscopes fitted with a video camera for quality images. The pictures at the bottom of the Vernal Pools article give a sample of what might be viewed. I can also offer a micro scavenger hunt option where children can gather samples to be viewed. This will require a longer program time and appropriate outdoor access.

Nature’s Designs
Discover the many patterns, shapes, and designs in nature. The plants and animals around us are design engineers. The show features photographs and computer demonstrations of the many patterns found in the natural world. We feature spirals and leaf vein patterns as examples of design optimization in nature.

Incredible Insects (Available May-September)
Insects are our hidden neighbors. We will learn how to find a variety of these creatures, how to identify them, and details of their weird and wonderful lives. Photographs and live images are magnified on a screen for easy group viewing. Program is available with live demos May through September only.

Solar System Tour

Our solar system has a variety of intriguing worlds with unique characteristics. Enjoy a ramble through the solar system with NASA images and computer simulations featuring highlights from the latest missions. Learn about conditions on the planets and their moons, and explore the often overlooked Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud.

Stories of the Night Sky
Learn about the stars, constellations, and planets in your night sky. We will focus on what is visible in the season the program is given, and then give a preview of the coming seasons. This program is given with a planetarium program projected from a computer, and so is not dependent on the weather. We can couple this with an outdoor observing session as well.

Understanding seasonal change in the sky is a key to learning the constellations. The ancients used the sky and their stories to track the seasons. We use many examples from ancient star lore to illustrate the concepts.

A Look at Black Holes
When exploring black holes we encounter warped space, quantum particles, and other topics once found only in science fiction. We will gain a better understanding of these once theoretical objects while preserving the wonder around them. This is best for ages 10 and up.
