New "Digs" for the Nursery/Kindergarten!

The nursery/kindergarten play yard welcomed a new sand area last week. Installation was enjoyed by a gathering of onlookers eager to participate! No sand hill to small to scale & no log to awkward to carry…Lisa Pool, Lisa Hochman, Chuck El-Ghoury, Maxine Garcia & “Grandpa Garcia” were the envy of the post-school crowd as the benefactors oversaw the construction of their new space. A heartfelt thank you to the construction crew!

Adventure Club

Inspired by 2008 Audubon Medal recipient, Richard Louv, several Sanderling families created ADVENTURE CLUB. Meeting on Saturday mornings at various locations county-wide, the club’s mission is to combat Louv’s “nature-deficit disorder” - a newly coined phenomenon centering on the disconnection between children and nature. With modern children spending less time outdoors, Louv claims behavioral problems are sure to follow. So if you’re interested in combating fears of nature and the lure of the screen, check out ADVENTURE CLUB on Saturdays…it looks like a great time for all, as witnessed in last week’s snaps from the San Elijo Lagoon.
