Welcome To Porter Explorers

Welcome to the wilderness.  Well, it isn't really the wilderness, but it IS the Wilds Of Lake County.  The new Porter Program For Science and Mathematics building --The Lake Metroparks Environmental Learning Center, is our own "School In the Woods."  We call it a school in the woods.  What do you think this means?  You are the explorers.  What do you think a "School In the Woods" is.  Add your comments and lets talk about this idea. Watch the Welcome video below.  It contains a mystery question.  Can you answer it? Post your answers and comments by adding a comment below the video.  Then go on to the next posting. 

Where are we?

Did you ever wonder where you were?  I do all the time.  Well, when you visit the Porter Center at the Environmental Learning Center you are many places at the same time.  Of course you are on the Earth, and in the Solar System.  You are in the Northern Hemisphere and North America.  You are in  Ohio and in Lake County.  Where else are you?  Add your ideas to "where you are" in the comments below.  We will discuss these.
