Audubon Field Trip

We love being outside!  We went to the Audubon on Wednesday to investigate insects and look for signs of spring.  We found lots of creatures under the leaf litter, rocks, and rotting logs in the forest.  The large black beetles, centipedes, and salamanders were favorites.  We did discover a lot of ants as well.  Their home was loaded with eggs and larvae.  We saw the ants carrying eggs and plant material.  At the pond we used nets to scoop out water creatures.  We caught dragonfly nymphs, tadpoles, leeches, snails, etc.  We could have scooped for hours!
