September 15, 2014 Updates
#1- Visit two new national parks in 2014. Complete.
#2- Identify and journal three new birds. Two out of three done!
I have completed the Bewick’s Wren and Clark’s Nutcracker.
#3- Identify and journal three new rocks. Once again, I am failing at this goal. I need to refresh my memory and make a plan. (See below for my new plan to accomplish my goals.)
#4- Three new hikes. Complete!
#5 Visit a new-to-me nature center. Complete.
We thoroughly enjoyed the nature center at Great Basin National Park.
#6- Post a nature photo of the week for the entire year. Up to date!
#7- Camping in all four seasons.
So our spring trip didn’t happen because of my road trip to the East Coast with my daughter…BUT we have gone on three camping trips this summer! (We have a camping trip planned for the end of September and then another in December…plus a trip for spring 2015 to the Grand Canyon!)
My New Plan For Accomplishing my Goals
I have added a Nature Study Goals box to the Nature Study Planning Page in the newsletter for October (take a peek at the original page in this entry). This may remind me and all of you too of your nature study goals each month. Let me know how it helps you or if you have any other ideas for the planning page.
