Camp Discover

This week and next, I am helping out with Camp Discover, a day camp held at Tracy City Elementary School, which is located close to the Grundy Forest trailhead of the Fiery Gizzard. Every other day the campers head to the Gizzard to explore and learn about its inhabitants. The program is largely funded by Scholastic Book Publishing and the Yale Child Study Center, along with the generous support of other groups, including Sewanee: the University of the South and the Friends of South Cumberland State Park. In addition to my participation in leading journaling sessions, the herbarium has provided each camper with a magnifying glass to help them get up close and personal with bugs, butterflies, and other beasties of the Fiery Gizzard.
