Nature Walk, February 22, 2022

On Tuesday, February 22, we walked from campus to Oakland Lake. This was the first time we had all been outside together and I was glad to take off my mask and get to talk to you. I had been hopeful that the wind and rain would hold off, but sadly, it did not. Even so, we got to see the raindrops speckle the surface of the pond.

In the comments section below, please share your thoughts about our Nature Walk. Did you take pictures? Did you use the iNaturalist app? If so, what did you identify? What did you see? Hear? Smell? Did anything surprise you? You don't have to answer all of these questions. You can even write a poem in response. Thank you for sharing!

November 1, 2021 Nature Walk

Hi all,

I am so glad that we got to spend some time today in our beautiful community greenspace right here in Queens! Last time we visited Oakland Lake, summer was not quite over. Today, however, is a bit cooler out. For today's discussion, I'd like you to share your nature observations with your peers. What do you notice? What changed since our last visit? What connections can you make to something we’ve discussed this semester? What connections can you make to something you’ve experienced?

Someone was asking where the turtles go in the winter. I found these two articles for anyone who's interested:

Hi all,

I am so glad that we got to spend some time today in our beautiful community greenspace right here in Queens! Last time we visited Oakland Lake, summer was not quite over. Today, however, is cold and windy. For today's discussion, I'd like you to share your nature observations with your peers. What do you notice? What changed since our last visit? What connections can you make to something we’ve discussed this semester? What connections can you make to something you’ve experienced?

Fall 2021 Nature Walk (ALP)

On Wednesday, September 22, we went on our Nature Walk to Oakland Lake near our campus. We saw a singing unicyclist, a crawfish, geese, turtles, and swans. We even saw some early signs of autumn.

For this assignment, I'm taking you outside of our Blackboard discussion board to the iNaturalist app so you can share your observations and photographs with your classmates. We will go on three Nature Walks, all of which lead up to an essay you will write later on in the semester. We are starting to gather evidence for that project now.

Please respond to this prompt with:

One observation about Oakland lake as an urban greenspace. Use sensory details to describe what you saw. If you took a picture and identified with the iNaturalist app, use the scientific name of your observation.

NOTE: If you are not using your QCC email, please make sure to include your first name and last name initial in your post (ex: Marie J.).
