Beczak Eco Art and Seining

We went to an eco art class at Beczak Environmental Education Center, at which the kids built shrines from boxes covered with paper, fabric, ceramic bits and bobs, clay, etc. My hands were so covered in glue assisting Mikro that I never got a good photo.

After the artwork, Beczak kicked off its seining program, and Mikey and his friend Dakota (who is also homeschooled) had a blast. They got to wear hip waders, walk out into the Hudson and drag in a huge net, and even managed to catch a white perch and a bunch of mud shrimp.

After we left, another Beczak seining group netted a seahorse!
