EARTH DAY!!!!

EARTH DAY!!!

We celebrated Earth Day this year by helping with a trail clean up at our local natural history museum, Fernbank Museum of Natural History. We had a great time, pulled weeds and replanted some local plants that grow fruit that deer and racoons eat! 

We didn't see the beavers :(....
