First Blog Post - Eliza Dean

Eliza and Anjali on the beach

Today was my first day as a Junior Ranger, I learned so much about nature, like, deer flies hang around Juniper  Trees and when a warm blooded animal walks past the Juniper Tree the deer flies attack! We went to the beach and looked at deer tracks and erosion. I learned that you can tell a male and female deer apart from their tracks! We also looked at dead man's fingers, a type of seaweed that takes over eel grass. Then we walked back and had lunch. After lunch we went to the Conservation Foundation and picked up badges and bags for us to keep. When we got back we had free swim time on the beach, I also got to hand feed the turtle. I had a really fun first day.
