Hunter: “I hope to find buds on the trees. I think they’re bigger.”
Hadlee: “Me and grace are gonna find deer scat on the ground.”
Leah: “I want to find green stuff in the woods.”
Eleanor. That is “ice that has patterns on it.”
Celia: “I want to find feathers in the field.”
Elijah. That says “a black snake.” We looked and looked, but didn’t find any and decided it was probably too cold still.
Grace. That is “deer scat.” Luckily we find it every time!
“There is no snow left!!!”
Our ice sheet in the woods was gone too. Just a little ice left in the deepest part of the ravine.
We found these last week too on the edge of the woods. Sarah from CREA thought they might be owl pellets.
Elijah: “Look, a deer has bitten this bud off.”
Green! We found these tiny leaves tucked under dry grass in the field.
And Elliana found green ferns too!
We went down in the wetland and had to cross some small streams flowing through the frozen mud.
And then the bigger stream was flowing too! We found a thin ice bridge.
