Bullfrogs and Buddies in North Kansas City

On September 21, I traveled with Buddy Bison kids from Winnwood Elementary School in North Kansas City, Missouri to Smithville Lake. U.S. Army Corps Ranger Jim taught the kids about the purpose of the lake as a recreation area, a water source, and a wildlife habitat.

We went on a hike and got to see some of the amphibians that live around the lake. The kids even touched a real-life bull frog! The best part about places like Smithville Lake is that they give everyone the opportunity to get away from the city and back to nature.
