Nature Trekkers Summer Camp 2012 for Explorers ages 5 to 12 Week 9: Sensing Nature
Naturalists use a variety of tools to explore the natural world, but we rely most on the tools we are all born with – our senses! We will explore our toolbox of senses and then find out which animal tastes through their feet, has natural radar, can locate prey by sensing heat and has an eye that contains 30,000 lenses.
