I spent Saturday night with about 30 Girl Scouts at the Museum (and this Saturday there will be about 60 of them). They were doing a really cool animal observation program, and then they got to sleep over!
What troopers they were, taking on the role of wildlife biologists in the rain. They recorded animal behaviors using a variety of different tools commonly used by wildlife biologists.
Our female wolf licked herself (“groom” was the category on their observation sheet) and the male wolf walked back and forth on the top of the cliff.
After eating dinner in the Butterfly House, they took all their data and photographs and created a website with their findings. Click here to see examples of websites that several groups have already created.
Maybe this Saturday’s weather will be warmer and drier and the animals will be out and about and more active. We’ll see!
