Collecting Sagebrush Seed

Our homeschool group met at Dierkes lake to do a sagebrush seed collection project with our friend Ed, the forest ranger. It was fun to get out in the desert and enjoy being outdoors for a couple hours. We love the rugged beauty of the canyon.

Here is Hailey and some of her friends with their seed collecting hoop.

Taylor and his buddies had a great time together.

Heidi found a seat just her size formed in the lava rock.
Towards the end of the outing the girls discovered the cattails going to seed and decided to help nature out.

What a GREAT activity. My kids would have LOVED it!`Looks like everyone had a fun day. Burrr though, wasn't it cold?
