For the last several years, for our January meeting Ms. Linda from Arkansas Game and Fish has come and presented a program for us. In the past we have done: Arkansas Fur-bearers, Bears, Turkey, and White Tail Deer. This year our program was on Arkansas Endangered Species.
They started out by doing a demonstration on what happens when a species starts dying out in higher then ordinary numbers and how that can lead to becoming endangered. They talked about the different things that can cause a species to become endangered and what kinds of things we can do to prevent a species from becoming endangered. Then they split up into 5 teams and did some riddles to try and guess which Arkansas endangered animals she was talking about. After that they did a coloring page about an endangered beetle.
We had a pretty good turnout for the meeting 15 children counting siblings and that was with two of mine missing. Next month we are doing a program on kitchen science.
