WHOOOOOO’S HANGING AT CAMP?
We’re excited for everyone to meet this creature at camp tonight! If you heard the sounds from yesterday’s post- you would have heard this animal. The animals were crickets, bullfrog, coyote, cicada, bats and a horned owl. And we’re off to meet one of those horned owls.
MEET THE GREAT HORNED OWL!!
