Springing into Spring with Spring Peepers!

Today, the Adolescents went on another trip to the Land. We scouted the pond areas for frogs and other amphibians. We found many cricket frogs and spring peepers. This is a good sign because those species are native to Missouri. After a successful collection of frogs and data, we split into two teams. One team searched the forest for invasive honeysuckle sprouts and the other team helped Mr. Mike cut down the tall pampas grasses. Later this spring, we plan to replace the non-native pampas grasses with native switchgrass.
