The weather was glorious today and it was another magnificent day that students came out for the Audubon Watershed Experience. Ms. Keeler and Mr. Grimes' students spent the day fishing, seining, and hiking while debating important current ecological topics. An early morning breeze kept the students cool as they fished on the dock, but the afternoon sun warmed everybody up with a temperature reaching into the 60s.
Hiking along the trails, students managed to spot over 20 different species of birds. A belted kingfisher was spotted in the morning at the pond in the front of the property. The students that hiked during the afternoon received a short glimpse of a blue-gray gnatcatcher. Low tide in morning allowed the students catch a blue crab, along with over a dozen silversides; and everybody managed to stay dry throughout the day.
