Bloom is an annual nature festival held in Søndermarken, Frederiksberg. In 2019 the Bloom Festival started an initiative for school children to spend half a day in the park learning about science and nature. I did three guided ant safaris around the park where we looked at live ants living in the park, some leafcutter ants that I’d brough along in a small container and specimens from the Natural History Museum of Denmark. We talked about how humans and climate affect ants and how ants adapt to different environments. This program was specifically aimed at children in 6th-9th grade.
