Alcuin Montessori School

Alcuin Montessori School Adolescent Program teaches a unit about "Balance" and became interested in using Nature's Notebook as a platform to integrate topics in ecology, plant biology, and climate change. Our monitoring project serves their academic goals and is a great experience for the students to contribute to a Citizen Science project. Students and their teachers will conduct observations in a local park in Oak Park, IL. The Oak Park park district has detailed information about species in this park and there are species in the park that are listed on the Green Wave Midwest campaign, such as Northern Red Oak, Red Maple, and Sugar Maple.
