We played some games and then had circle where Katie showed us pelts and skulls of local desert animals. It was fun to feel the soft fur of so many animals (ranging from ringtailed cat to mountain lion!).
Afterward we had snack and then loaded up to go to the Wildlife Center. This was wonderful. We had a tour and got an up close look at a Barred Owl, a Red Tailed Hawk, and a Peregrine Falcon.
Afterward, we walked around and saw all kinds of animals. Highlights included a bald eagle, vultures, falcons, a grey fox, bobcats, pygmy owls, and a turtle! We then chose an animal to go and draw, read stories, had closing circle, and played some games!
