Today we set up our Malaise trap by the pond. We saw lots of wildlife while we set it up. We saw Mallard ducks, a Cormorant, and a Great blue heron. We are excited to see all the cool bugs we trap!
7Marr set up our Malaise Trap this morning. We struggled a little with the guy ropes, but got the trap set! Jack used a hammer. He was pumped! We are anxious to see what insects we collect and are looking forward to being a part of this project. Today’s temperature is 19 degrees, but it feels like 25. The skies are overcast and there was a lot of rain last night. #hammer #buglife
We are also very excited about our first experience with the BIO Malaise Trap Program. Our grade four class intends to set up our trap in the butterfly garden at the front of the school. What an amazing opportunity to learn how real world science works to inform us about the world around us! We look forward to sharing how the experience unfolds for us.
Tomorrow we’re going to set up our school Malaise trap! Our class at Jack Chambers P.S. is really excited. My name is Nabil, and this is the first time our school is doing something like this. We’re going to set up our trap near our school pond, and we can’t wait to see how many and what type of bugs we will find. Tomorrow we will write more about how we set the trap up and how it went.
