Thursday May 3rd

Thursday was an adventure-filled day to remember, and one that reminded us of the value of place-based learning. As we crossed the musical bridge, we observed that Peterson Creek had the highest flow levels we’ve seen yet this Spring. As we made our way down the winding trail to Curly Willow Bend that became even more apparent as parts of the trail were beginning to flow over with water. Luckily this week we could still get by, but when we arrived at our usual crossing we found our bridge to be all together gone – “it’s too creeky” EF exclaimed! After a brief discussion about whether or not our place was safe to play in and how it might be safe to cross the creek today our group found another way, over the car bridge, down the road to get into Curly Willow Bend.
The children couldn’t get their packs off fast enough, because there was something drastically different about this place today!
