Seining the Hudson-- Homeschoolers Nature Class

These photos are from a few weeks ago. I'm trying to move some of the more homseschooling related posts here from my personal journal... Mikro takes a weekly science & nature class for homeschoolers at the local nature center. One day, the kids got to explore our local aquatic life by seining the Hudson River and doing a fish count.

The kids got to try their hands at using a dichotomous key to determine species, observing (and touching) blue crabs, moon jellies, striped bass, silver sides, and white perch.
