Go Fish
Today during our visit to the Round Lake Preserve, the Green Hour Group saw Cabbage White and Clouded sulphur(yellow) butterflies and one Monarch. A red and a blue dragonfly were spotted. We saw fish and lily pads in the water. There was a caterpillar on the boardwalk. We heard crows cawing but did not see them. Rocks were found and looked at and we picked up litter. It was a beautiful day for the first day of autumn. I wonder what the preserve will look like in winter and what we would see.

For the Green Hour Group: Squirrels are Gardeners

I saw this sign in the Children's Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden recently. I wanted to share it with you, as we were just talking about squirrels, acorns, and oak trees last week at Green Hour.
