Auf Deutsch bitte

The Francis Beidler Forest hosts visitors from across the United States and from around the world. Although foreign visitors are not all from Germany, many visitors are German-speaking. Nearby Bosch, a German company with some of its employees temporarily moving here from Germany, also supplies visitors. Therefore, the education department is developing a guidebook written in German and the education director is working to improve his German speaking skills.

The animal in the swamp that generates the most questions is die Schlange. Most students want to see one during their school group's visit, while many adults have an unwarranted (because animals are seldom on the boardwalk) fear of this creature. Eine Schlange im Sumpf is a snake in the swamp.

Auf Wiedersehen!
