Natural Connections: Exploring Northwoods nature through Science and Your Senses
Explore Northwoods nature with a knowledgeable guide. Join naturalist and author Emily Stone on a Northwoods adventure and you’ll soon be captivated by her animated storytelling style and knack for turning any old thing into a shining bit of stardust. Find out what makes rain smell so good, which native flower creates its own trebuchet, which flower is a cheater, and more!
