So, this week I have A LOT to tell you guys:) I have done so many cool things these past two weeks of my summer in Florida. Last Friday and Saturday, I did a butterfly census at Chinsegut Conservation Center and I went camping! If your wondering what a butterfly census is…it is a two loop walk through a park. You count the butterflies that you see and how many species you’ve seen through it all.
At the end you count it, and then total everything. We had 11 species and 58 total butterflies in all 🙂 it was kinda fun, not really what I would’ve done on a regular Friday, but there were some really cool butterflies. On the way home my grandma and her friend Ellie picked up a “fresh” a road kill raccoon off the road, Ellie is a taxidermist and she showed me how to skin and clean the fur – it was going to be worth almost $30 when she was done tanning it! She has some good talent! We all went camping at Crowley after 🙂 before we set up a tent and stuff we were picking Caesar weed it is a highly invasive plant down where we were camping….it took FOREVER but it was worth it!
After work I got to try out the zip line and had a nice hike. We had dinner and went to bed as we were all going to bed there was a baby owl that was feeding! It was really cool. On Saturday we picked some more Caesar weed and then my grandma had to teach a youth safety in the outdoors class 😉 that was pretty much it for those two days!
On Sunday after church we all went to the Sea Monsters Revealed exhibit at MOSI! It was REALLY COOL; they had actual fish or sea monsters that have a plastic inside and showed there organs and information about them 🙂
it had the “jaws” of JAWS it was sooooo cool!! They had a giant squid, her name was molly 🙂 to be honest they kinda scare me! Her eyes weren’t there so they only had the eye socket and it was gross but at the same time awesome!!!!
There was a touch station I touched a crab 🙂 I was so proud of myself! So that was my weekend! How was yours??? BYE:)
