Effie Yeaw Presentation

This afternoon we went to a special wildlife presentation at the library put on by a representative of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.  I'm really glad we went.  It was awesome!

The lady brought a ton of specimens to look at and touch, 2 animals to view up close, and she shared a ton of information.  Here's a list off all the things we were able to see.  I hope I didn't forget anything.
  • 3 children got to dress up as a mammal, a bird, and a reptile to illustrate the differences
  • picture of a beaver's home
  • beaver pelt
  • real (dried) beaver tail
  • real (dried) beaver hand and foot
