This week at camp will be devoted to one of California's most distinctive natural communities - the chaparral. Through a series of exciting, hands-on science lessons, we will explore the fascinating vegetation and animal life unique to this ecosystem. We will learn about the unusual adaptations caused by the dry climatic conditions in this environment. On Tuesday (Oakland Camp) and Wednesday (Berkeley Camp), we will take a field trip to Las Trampas Regional Wilderness in San Ramon where we can experience the chaparral first hand. In addition to studying California's chaparral, we will make fun, creative art projects, play outdoors, and watch educational science movies.

Featured Projects:

  • Learn about the flora and fauna of California's chaparral communities and build an electric matching game to test your friends and family.
  • Create a chaparral food-pyramid mobile.
  • Make a magnetic chaparral scene.
  • Make chaparral identification cards.
  • Build an air-powered pop-up chaparral scene.
  • Take a naturalist-led field trip on a bus to investigate a California chaparral habitat.
  • Use your nature detective cards to identify the unique plants and animals of the chaparral.
  • Construct your own sniff jars and use them to identify aromatic native chaparral plants.
  • Create a butterfly life cycle wheel and take home your own caterpillar.
  • Make a butterfly hotel to watch your chaparral caterpillar turn into butterfly.
  • And more!
