Monday and Tuesday of this week we had two more groups come to the refuge to participate in educational programs. Wednesday was by far the largest group......more than 120 students. I was assigned to help with the GPS segment. In the GPS exercise the students were paired up and given a hand held GPS programmed with information on the migration of certain birds. Each student picked a bird and followed the GPS to find the migratory path of their bird. Very interesting to watch.
Tuesday afternoon I joined fellow volunteer Judy to checkout the trails within the refuge for fallen trees. We found several small trees that we were able to move off the trails and finally came upon one that we could not move. I am so glad I brought my camera along. You never know what you will see in the refuge. Thank you Judy for inviting me along. I had a fun afternoon.
Later that afternoon John and I drove to Detroit Lakes to pick up our prescriptions. On the way back I took a few more pictures.
Wednesday, John was on mowing detail again. I worked at the Visitor Center in the morning and then accompanied our volunteer coordinator Janice during the afternoon for a cleaning assignment.
Today is one of our days off. We woke up to thunder and rain. Fred was not happy about that. Don't know what we will do today but I am sure we will think of something.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
