Join AmeriCorps Service Member Will O’Boyle for an hour of all things microscopes at Cool Spring Preserve/Case Nature Center!
PVAS Host: Will O’Boyle
$10/person (PVAS members receive a 10% discount). Recommended for ages 12 and older. All youth must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required and limited to 12 participants.
This program is designed to help young aspiring scientists 5th grade and up become more comfortable in the microscopic world. Learners and their families will learn how to use both dissecting and compound microscopes as well as how to prepare slides, use hand lenses, and collect samples for viewing.
This session will take place at the Case Nature Center at Cool Spring Preserve, which is wheelchair accessible. Seating is available for most if not all of this session.
About our Host: Will served at Potomac Valley Audubon Society since May 2023. Prior to this, he worked as an urban forestry surveyor and as a herbarium technician. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Frostburg State University in Literature and Letters, minoring in Forestry and Biology. He is looking forward to storytelling during family programs as well as fostering further love for the outdoors. Will is especially excited to learn and serve with PVAS’s staff and volunteers during the 2024 service year. Will is relatively new to the area (Native to Western Maryland) and is always looking for cool new places to hike and camp.
