The Thursday before Earth Day, at Homeschool Nature class, we did a shoreline cleanup and explored a part of our local park that we had never visited before. South Beach was a beautiful spot. One of the kids found a 200 year old blown glass bottle, which was turned over to the local archeology group.
We headed back to the Nature Center, where we were amazed by an up close view of a red tailed hawk preying upon rodents at the feeder area. He was completely unpreturbed by the flock of camera toting homeschoolers following his every move. What an incredible sight!
