The wetlands days at Busch conservation area

D and I went to "the wetland days for kids" at the Busch Conservation Area
One of the activities was to discover what lives in ponds. First you
scoop up muck from the bottom of the pond.
empty it on a plastic sheet
then you look to see what creatures you might find
I found something!!!
then take it over to a conservation agent to identify it
he couldn't resist
feeding the fish and turtles in the pond
reading his shark book on the drive home

JeanMac, we both slept good that night! After we returned home, D went to a Easter egg hunt. And then he had to be checked for ticks, nasty little creatures. Ticks liked his daddy when he was a little boy, I guess that is the price you pay for being out in the woods.
