The spring and the fall bring us our best opportunities to get outside and walk the nature trail near our location. Most of the time our goal is “nature awareness” with activities designed to have members looking at and listening to their outside environment. This time though, we just went out to enjoy the beautiful weather and get some fresh air.
Much to our surprise, it seems that our members have become accustomed to being aware of the nature around them, as this turtle was discovered in the marsh!
We all enjoyed looking at him and then returned him to the area we pulled him from. He seemed to breathe a sigh of relief as he burrowed back down into the marsh.
