OCTOBER 2012

All Hooves on Deck for DC Canoeing Adventures!

In October, my friends from Neval Thomas Elementary School traveled the Anacostia River in 24-foot canoes brought all the way from Minnesota! Here is what my buddy Jonas said about the trip:

 On October 25th, Mrs. Hill’s third grade class canoed on the Anacostia River...In my canoe, I saw one chickadee, one hawk, two cardinals (one male and one female), and many other birds. All of the canoes stopped at the entrance of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens…On the way there, we saw a beaver named Dillon looking at us, then on the way back, he was sleeping. We came back and took our life jackets off, put them away with our paddles and left quickly. We had a great time canoeing and learned and saw a lot! 

Turtles, Owls, and Hawks, Oh My…at Neval Thomas Elementary School

This month was the kick-off event for DC's Neval Thomas Elementary as they joined our Buddy Bison school program! The kids saw some amazing wildlife living right in their own backyards.

My friends Daryl and Kellie from the Earth Conservation Corps taught the kids about animal habitats and the importance of watersheds like the Anacostia River.

They got to see turtles, an owl, and even a red-tailed hawk! Afterwards, we all danced to the hit nature song, Humps, Hooves, and Horns. Thank you to Pepco Holdings, Inc. for sponsoring the Buddy Bison program at Neval Thomas.
