Outdoor Hour Challenge Blog Carnival – Wildflower and Weed Edition

OHC Blog Carnival

Wow! What a great month our family had with the weeds and wildflowers theme! We saw flowers everywhere we went and were able to add a few new ones to our wildflower lists. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the entries to the carnival…thanks so much for sharing your nature study activities with the Outdoor Hour Challenge family.

Our family’s wildflower and weed entries from this month’s study (in case you missed one):
1. Wildflower Nature Study – Getting Out And Enjoying The Weather
2. Our Oregon Coast Wildflower and Weed Grid
3. Milkweed Study – Start a Year Long Study

Be inspired. Be encouraged. Get outdoors!

Claire submits their Year Long Pond Study – Night Visit for this edition of the carnival. Her images and the progression of their on-going pond study are inspiring.

Eva submits her Surprise Cross Pollination Experiment entry for you to read. They had some petunias accidentally cross pollinate and you can see the results in her entry. This would be a great garden flower nature study activity.

Eva also has written up their Butterfly Bonanza – Lessons in Butterfly Identification, showing their outing with local naturalists to net and then identify butterflies. Great entry!
