St. Rose outdoor ed

St. Rose of Lima student Julian Alcaraz was delighted to take his turn to hold Ginger, a 33-year-old ornate box turtle who is a long-time resident of the nature center at Yellow Smoke Park. St. Rose students participated in Outdoor Ed Day at Yellow Smoke Park. Groups of students rotated among six learning centers: fishing, pond study, scavenger hunt, reptiles, STEM challenges and Hula Hoop races. Naturalist Kelly Sonnichsen said Ginger is one of a pair of ornate box turtles at the nature center. The other one, Fred, is not as good-natured so he is not used for nature lessons.
