Audubon Field Trip

Audubon Field Trip
Thursday, October 4, 2012

A big thank you to our parent volunteers who helped chaperone our field trip to
the Audubon.  The weather cooperated and we all enjoyed our time outside.  Students
noticed many signs of Autumn.  As they hiked through the woods they collected
seeds and found insects and other animals hiding under logs and leaves.  A
highlight was the discovery of a 7 inch spotted salamander.  In the field
students used nets to sweep for insects.  The Audubon teachers helped us discover
many ways that plants and animals get ready for winter.
