Youth Education Program:  BH Ecotours naturalist Phil Kyle teaching about horseshoe crabs
Youth Education Program Trip: A chilly May day

Friday’s Youth Education Program yep! trips with Barnstable Harbor Ecotour were a big hit with Barnstable High School English Language Learners.

Topics covered on the trips ranged from basic mapping, bird identification and behavior, description of Barnstable Harbor’s extraordinary tides and selfies! Yes selfies, it seems that no matter how beautiful the surrounding scenery, there is simply never enough selfies!

Barnstable Harbor Ecotours naturalist introduced students to electricity-free Sandy Neck Cottage Colony, reminding the students that there are lifestyles where the phone is a tool.

Nevertheless, the magic of Barnstable Harbor penetrates the even the age of electronics. Phones away and hands out to feel how horseshoe crabs really don’t bite.
