Summer Camp

Summer Camp 2007 has begun at the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest! Campers began with an orientation walk along the 1.75-mile boardwalk during which they saw three species of snakes (Banded Water Snake, Red-bellied Water Snake, and Eastern Cottonmouth), White Ibis, Prothonotary Warblers, a Yellow-crowned Night Heron with a crayfish, Yellow-bellied Sliders, and a variety of dragonflies and damselflies.

The afternoon was filled with journal making, an experiment demonstrating the concentration of liquids which modeled pheromones in insects, and fossil mold castings (see images; whale vertebra and shark tooth).
