Through a grant from the New Marlborough Cultural Council, the Kindergartners at New Marlborough Central explored parts of Beartown State Forest with local Wilderness Educator, Tes Reed. They observed signs of beaver activity in the form of chewed branches and, upon investigating further, eventually spotted a lodge close to the edge of the water. They compared this to another lodge further away and to a dam. Further down the trail, porcupine activity was abundant, and to everyone's delight, a young porcupine was soon spotted in a tree! Other highlights included seeing trillium, bouncy moss, hobblebush, and moosewood!
Due to the weather forecast for tomorrow, the Special Olympics have been postponed until next Wednesday, May 10th.
