This was a nice place to spend the day. Inside, there is a display of local wildlife: outside, there are miles of nature trails.
The nature center
Albino garter snake
Rehabbed Mississippi Kite–he can’t fly
Tiger Salamander. What an adorable little guy.
Great Blue Heron outside at the pond
Woodpecker–not sure which species
As always when I go into the woods, I spent some time turning over logs. This is a clutch of salamander eggs, but I didn’t see Mommy anywhere.
