Birding at Madrona Marsh
On March 19, 2016, the Ecology Club and other 7th graders from my class went Birding at Madrona Marsh in Torrance. It was a perfect California 70 degree day. Ms. Tracy guided us on the different types of birds in the marsh and how to identify them.

**We would like to thank all the students that supported the Ecology Club this year. Those that bought a slushy made it possible for us to go. Special thanks to Mr. Salas (for letting us go), Ms. Saenz (for always helping with the Slushy lines, and Ms. Cardenes for buying one every week!) 

On November 16, 2013, the Ecology Club went to Madrona Marsh to go Birding. It was a beginner's guide to birds, bird life, and behavior. We focused on how WEATHER really effected daily life.

A type of bug ended up on Justin's jacket. We observed it carefully and then let it go.
