Emily Gomez (right) seems both excited and apprehensive as she holds a red-eared slider named Pudding. Gomez and Cristal Castellanos (middle) were among the kindergarten students who were on a field trip to the Yellow Smoke Park nature center this week to take part in some snow experiments. After the experiments, the youngsters had time to explore the nature center. At left is Kelly Sonnichsen, Crawford County naturalist, who organized the experiments and helped students hold the turtle and feed the fish in the pond. Photo by Gordon Wolf
