Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge
Mountain Lion Nature Study
Are you joining us for the new series of Outdoor Hour Challenges from the brand new ebook, High Desert Nature Study? I highly recommend this ebook for everyone, even if you don’t live in or near this fascinating habitat. The topics we’re going to work through are ones that your children will find interesting and be excited to complete in anticipation of observing these subjects in the future.
As always, where possible, I suggest an alternative or supplementary nature study topic for you to choose from for each Outdoor Hour Challenge. This week the alternative suggested nature study topic is: Outdoor Hour Challenge: Cats
Here are a few ideas to get you started with a mountain lion nature study:
- Choose your resource for learning about the mountain lion (Puma concolor). Don’t forget to look at your public library for books on mountain lions.
- For younger children, listen to chapter 30 in the Burgess Animal Book for Children, featuring the cougar (mountain lion).
- Advanced study: Research what you should do if you encounter a mountain lion. Here is a link: Mountain Lion Foundation.
Please note that I won’t be posting the complete challenge here on the blog, but you will find the detailed challenge in the High Desert ebook that’s available both in the Ultimate Naturalist and Journey level memberships.
