We had a beautiful and warm day for our field trip to NC State's Centennial Campus. We split into 2 groups and for a change, I went with the older group! The younger group stayed on the site and did some nature programming on insects.
There are also things to see inside the building that looked neat. Love the door!
I only got a quick peek at them though. I was chosen to go with the older students because of my big van! :-)
We were meeting at an off-site location to learn more about telemetry. We first listened and learned about what they were doing to track turtles. It was neat to learn more about how turtles respond when their habitat is changed. They track the turtles over time to see what their movement patterns are in the area.
After the first turtle was located, a new set of students took a turn at finding the next turtle.
Rebecca and Hanna decided to work together as a pair which took a lot of good communicating! Helps that they are great friends!
Its just sweet seeing my girls playing together. Rebecca waited a long time for this sister.
When we finished, we headed over to nearby Pullen Park. We hadn't been there since it has been renovated and it looks great! We had a picnic in one of the new shelter areas.
Eliana was actually a little scared on the ride which is quite unlike her. It made me wonder if being glutened leaves you feeling a little off balance in any way??? Anyone know?
And of course the train around the park!
We ended the day by visiting Moonberries for frozen yogurt. It was a wonderful treat after a warm day. A delightful day of learning, laughing and just having fun! Looking forward to our next field trip day ... tomorrow!
