Outdoor Hour Challenge Blog Carnival – May 2014 Edition

OHC Blog Carnival

This has been a very busy traveling month for our family. My daughter and I visited four national parks and one national historic site. What a great trip!

While I was gone, you were all busy with your May nature study and some of you have sent in your entries. I invite you to take a look at this month’s entries and encourage each other with your family outdoor time. Thank you to all who sent in your entries!

Our family’s entries from this month’s study (in case you missed one):

May/Spring Garden Observations

Hiking in the Adirondacks (including a snake!)

Be inspired. Be encouraged. Get outdoors!



Carol from Journey and Destination shares their excellent cat study, Nature Study and Outdoor Hour Challenge, and journal with the carnival. You will also enjoy seeing more of their Southern Hemisphere nature study subjects and nature journals.

Alex at Life on a Canadian Island has submitted their Squirrel Visitor in the Garden entry for you to enjoy. This challenge was to find a mammal to study and they featured this one instead of a cat…love the story.
