Career Day

Each year, Summerville Elementary School invites parents to come and share their profession with the students. The image shows Mark Musselman, education director, discussing the Francis Beidler Forest and a career in environmental education with a class of students. Using a turkey leg, a Barred Owl's wing and talons, a turtle shell, a beaver skull, a snake skin, a deer skull, various digital images, and an alligator skull, Mark shared with the students the uniqueness of the virgin, old-growth swamp, the relationships of its inhabitants, and the importance of conserving natural areas before they disappear.

Except for live animals, there is little that can trump a hugh gator skull!
