Our Dive Into Nature group was keen to explore the pond. So we donned our rubber boots, and set off for an adventure. We took a secret way through the woods, down a new path to our forest site - which meant crossing some water to get there. We helped each other across, and started to build a small bridge.
On the way there, we passed the Hiding Tree.
For some of us, it was quite an adventure to get through the water/quick-mud!
But we made it! Then we did some exploring of the water and the creatures that live there. We found frogs, a minnow, pond snails, a mallard duck, red-winged blackbirds, and even a cute little jumping deer mouse (not in the water, but in the cattail area by the creek).
Some of us kept on building the shelter that has been developing over the weeks - with intricately laid sticks, bark, and leaves to cover it.
