It snowed and was about 23 degrees today! WHOOOOAAAA. And we had an incredibly busy day outside. First we checked out the area we are studying, Cook's Lake. We had to collect hay from a hillside to put into the small mammal traps.
Extra Credit: Why would we want to put hay into the small mammal traps? What would "hay" do for the animals? Think about our HEAT unit.
We had to put these traps throughout the woods. The other teachers and I put out over 100! Tomorrow we go back and look at the traps to see if any small mammals were captured.
