spring weather field trip

WREN had its first field trip after a long season of office work and outreach programs – and what a day for it! The sun sure did feel good. Elizabeth Allen’s class from Life! Lutheran School came out to explore this morning and some of us were lucky enough to spot a garter snake that was also enjoying the sunshine. We also saw a red tailed hawk, a meadowlark, mallards, and lots of red winged blackbirds singing and showing off those bright red patches on their wings! Trying not to disturb the pair of mallards in the pond, we dipped nets and found mites, beetles and other life. A great day!
