Hand lenses are a great way to investigate the outdoors up close and personal! Naturalists tend to have a hand lens in their bags, whether or not they use them, as a good way to take a closer look at a subject. In the winter there are still things to look at: snowflakes, insect tunnels in wood, lichens, tree ringsā€¦ the list goes on! Join us for a field trip, which will focus (literally!) on looking at things closely! Please bring a hand lens, and if you do not have one, we have a limited number to use at the Welcome Center (email Head Naturalist Clinton at naturalist@saxzim.org to reserve).

Our day will start at the Lois King Education Center at the Friends of Sax-Zim Bog Welcome Center. This field trip will include indoor and outdoor portions, so do dress accordingly. Please bring all manner of hand lenses, as it is useful to compare and contrast magnification for different purposes in the field and classroom. Bring a lunch, refillable water bottle (water is available for refills at the Welcome Center), and any cameras or notetaking materials you might need for the day.

The course cost is $35 and includes course manuals and supplies.
