Shout out to @khalebyordan the man who took me out to the amazing pelagic bird trip yesterday! We got a handful of amazing species including Christmas Island Frigatebird, Milky Stork, Aleutian Tern and Parasitic Jaeger.

Khaleb and his brother @boasemmanuel are running a birding tour company called Jakarta Birder. If you are interested on such a trip, you can contact him at @jakartabirder

Rachel hammers a rock - could it be gold? It's probably just fools' gold (scientifically known as pyrite). The 9th grade field trip to Franklin, NJ was a great success.

It was a bittersweet farewell to the Jackrabbit Cabin. The girls didn't want to leave, but were also ready to go home. It was a fun filled week full of hours of hands on learning. So long, until next time!! #campkeep2017 #outdoorscience #naturetime

While some of us were โ€œworkingโ€ at @stanleecomiccon this weekend, our awesome honors paleontology students had their Peccary Trip to collect fossils in Barstow, California! Not many high school students can say they have paleo field experience!.

New day, new adventures! Day's highlights part 1: big horse conchs ๐Ÿš A student and a chaperone found a couple of these beauties earlier today! Scientific name Triplofusus giganteus, they are not actually true conchs though, just called them in common English names. They are the largest predatory marine gastropod (basically marine snail ๐ŸŒ) in US waters, and one of the largest species of univalves (single shelled animal) in the world ๐ŸŒŽ. They mostly eat other gastropods though, so don't be afraid to say hello! It was my first time seeing them at this spot, super pumped! *

Stumbled upon this poor chap on the tarred road in FRIM. Probably a juvenile, maybe slightly longer than the long plastic ruler we used to have in secondary school (what is SI anyway). Hazard a guess that this is the twin-barred tree snake (Chrysopelea pelias, of the Colubridae family). Alive, it's known as the flying tree snake for its ability to glide through the air, jumping from tree to tree. While widely distributed throughout Southeast Asia, sightings are apparently rare from what Google-fu tells me. Its habitat, while not under threat, seems to coincide with protected areas such as the Forest Research Institute Malaysia in Kepong.

While trying to ID the snake, I also came across similar looking ones like the coral snake (Very. Venomous.) and the scarlet king snake (not at all venomous). Nature is a hose teaser that way. Some actual Genius McPerson came up with a nifty riddle that could save your ass out in the wild: Red on yellow, kill a fellow. Red on black, friend of Jack. Your guess which snake is which.

This twin-barred tree snake is only mildly venomous however. Still pretty. Too bad your time on earth wasn't long, wee snake. Pleasure to have seen you.

Didn't see much in the way of charismatic megafauna today, but we saw a bunch of these cuties! They may look like orbies or the chewy tapioca bits at the bottom of fancy smoothies, but they are actually living organisms! Ctenophores (aka comb jellies), get their nick name from long rows of wavy cilia (looks like a comb) that run down the length of their bodies. They use the cilia to swim instead of tentacles, arms or fins. In fact, they are the largest organism that swims with cilia! Though they look similar to jelly fish, genetically and morphologically they are actually very different. They can be found all over the world, so the next time you're in the water, check to see if any are nearby!

Mud puddles. They are drawn to them. This time they didn't have their rain boots so they decided to experiment and see what around them would float or sink. Love that they didn't argue about not jumping in but instead took control and found another way to play!

๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ› Still in love with this beastie~ I get a jolt of pure JOY every time I encounter a #mantis, in part because it is so easy to anthropomorphize their personalities, and in another part due to how COOL they are!
๐Ÿ˜
Not a pest species in terms of human relations, the mantises' closest relatives are termites and cockroaches! (Thank you Google for that hilarious tidbit.) I think everyone can agree it's a boon to see them in your neighborhood, and many- myself included- interpret their presence as indictive to a healthy environment. Strictly speaking, I'm not sure this is true, but as larger predator, it holds at least some merit.
๐Ÿ’š
If you're more the #gardening type, however, these critters have "negligible benefits" in pest control, because they tend to be opportunistic ambush predators, so don't rely on then to guard your tomatoes! They target whatever crosses their path, whenever it crosses, although a few species run down their next meal.

Ever wonder how airplanes fly? I mean they sometimes fly at speeds not much faster then a fast car on the interstate yet they achieve flight through a process called "lift" that is based on this demonstration of the Bernoulli's principle. First observed in the 1700s in the study of fluid dynamics this principle describes how the increase of speed is proportional to the decrease of pressure. Notice how the ball in the video is pulled toward the flowing steam of water. This same pull is what provides lift for an aircraft wing as the surface area of the wing is larger on top then on bottom, causing the air on the top of the wing to flow faster as the plane cuts through the air. This increased speed on top causes decreased pressure, essentially sucking the plane up into the air. The same principle causes the roof of buildings to sometimes get lifted right off its structure during extreme high winds.

This increased speed on top causes decreased pressure, essentially sucking the plane up into the air. The same principle causes the roof of buildings to sometimes get lifted right off its structure during extreme high winds. #bernoullisprinciple  #sciencefun  #howairplanesfly  #avionics  #humanflight  #scienceexperiment  #fluiddynamics  #physics  #physicslab  #outdoorscience  #backyardscience 
Calling Nevadans living around the Verdi area! The Nevada Department of Wildlife (@nevadawildlife) is hosting a presentation and activities session concerning radio collar science at the Verdi Community Library and Nature Center on Sunday, September 10th. Learn firsthand how biologists use this technology to get a more intimate look at how #animals travel and use their #environments through time.

Fashionable chokers arenโ€™t the only neckwear that are all the rage these days! #radiocollars help researchers determine movement patterns of individuals and #populations to better inform ecological studies and scientific management practices. Knowing when and where certain species move during certain times of the year helps us understand how and why they make those decisions.

The program is free and open to the public so bring your friends and family!

Sunday, September 10th at 10:00 a.m.

Verdi Library and Nature Center
270 Bridge Street
Verdi, Nevada

Erik comes to the field of #outdooreducation with a background in geography/environmental studies from #UCLA. Through this lens, he developed a desire to address the social and #environmental injustices that primarily affect communities of color. He hopes the #outdooreducatorsinstitute will allow him to bridge the gap that many people of color face in accessing and navigating #outdoor spaces. Along with #OEI, Erik is currently in his second year of service through @educationoutside where he teaches #outdoorscience in an elementary school #garden to connect all students to the #naturalworld. #outdooreducators

Another great week on the river with the Natural Resources class! Yes this is for school. #OutdoorScience#GoPro#Canon#Rafting
First official video of the YHS natural resources class! Many more to come! #GoPro #Canon #OutdoorScience
What's better than watching a total eclipse? Going whitewater rafting down the Snake River on @madriverjh with the river to yourself because no one else is running that day. Watching the eclipse in the path of totality in a gorgeous canyon with no crowds, even though they're just up the road in @grandtetonnps. Eating a delicious lunch, then rafting the famous Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter Rapids. Camping the previous night next to the Gros Ventre River, after watching the sun set over the Tetons. I bought some eclipse glasses, but got a free boat ride complete with memories thrown in.

What did you see during this solar eclipse? Educators took a break from enjoying the view to measure sunlight and do a solar panel experiment. #outdoorscience #Eclipse2017 #science #solareclipse #solarpower
