Day 15: Lily Dog Tricks, New Camp Rabbit & Blind Mouse Eagle Gets Friend Buffalo

Today our camp dog Silly Lily Bean shows off her amazing camp tricks, our new black rabbit Bonita Harriet Buns says she’s ready for prime time, and our blind mouse Eagle wants to introduce his girlfriend Buffalo to you. We’ll end with a deep dive into our Meal Worm farm as an introduction to tomorrow’s chicken coup tour. Today’s song is appropriately “Little Help From My Friends” by the Beatles.

TEMPORARY NOTE: We need 1,000 subscribers before we can live stream via YouTube from our phone in the field so PLEASE go to and subscribe. Again, they have a rule that we need 1,000 subscribers in order to schedule live streams from our phone or tablet. Let’s get this done quick and ask all your family and friends to subscribe as well. THANKS!

Join us for our daily “You Healthy? Go Outside!” Evening Broadcast – Family Friendly Music & Earth Skills Activities with Kim & Chris Chisholm, Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the video lesson and would like to help keep Wolf Camp administrative staff employed through springtime.

UPCOMING TOPICS: We encourage you to offer suggestions on Virtual Earth Skills Camp lessons and adventures you’d like us to broadcast in the coming. Otherwise, our plans for the coming week include:

  • Tuesday? Chicken Coop Tour and the lessons we’ve learned raising poultry over the years;
  • Wednesday? Yard critters like Bugs & Grubs, Slugs & Snails, Cocoons & Caterpillars, Beetles & Flies, Other Insects & Spiders;
  • Thursday? Orchard Tour and tree planting lesson (the right way so they don’t die) in honor of reducing carbon in the atmosphere;
  • Friday? Installing a community sidewalk garden
  • This Weekend? Animal tracking adventures, wildlife safety and language of the birds.

Announcements & Reminders:

Support your local emergency hospitals, first responders, homeless service providers and other essential care givers by finding out what kind of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) they need, then launch a neighborhood effort to round up and deliver those items.

– Going outside is the healthiest way to maintain happiness while social distancing, where virus concentrations dissipate in the fresh air and can get killed by extended exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, and where the sun helps us produce Vitamin D, also keeping us happy and well. Gardening in particular is a great way to stay healthy, and if things get tough, one of the best ways to increase your food security.

Please consider a contribution if you benefited from this video, and help us keep Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm going during this time when we can’t run spring workshops. We’re hoping to keep administrative staff employed in advance of the summer camp season.

Thanks, and please catch live broadcasts on the Wolf Camp facebook page or via the Wolf College youtube channel live stream if we’re within wifi range starting at 6:00 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it here at 7:00 PM, until the social distancing era end or June 14, 2020, whichever comes quickest:)
