The first in a series of three one-week nature camps through Pleasant Hill Park and Rec has started. Kelly Bradley and her assistants, Elise and Jocelyn, are at the ranch this week for the first camp, Pollinators and More. Children in grades 1 through 5 are learning all about bees, flowers that attract them, bats that pollinate flowers, and more. They will complete a Citizen Science project, sample honey, make beeswax cream, and take home bee and butterfly-friendly seedlings. To register for the other two nature camps, Cooking In and From The Garden (7/25 - 7/29) and Little House on Pleasant Hill (8/1 - 8/5), go to http://www.pleasanthillrec.com/camps.html
