2017 Reflection

When we weren’t volunteering around the park, we learning about native wildlife inside the nature center. It contained a zoo-like arrangement of snakes and injured wildlife, including a beaver, several foxes, a coyote, an eagle and an owl. The park’s surrounding greenery allowed us to see deer throughout our stay, and we were guided to a location to view hawks and eagles.
