Last week the summer readers attended an education program and picnic at Lee State Park. Conducted by Ranger Laura Kirk, the program consisted of taking samples from the pond and then examining them under the electron microscope. This is the fourth year we have gone out to the part and Ranger Kirk always shows us a good as well as educational time! The youngsters love to see the invisible world that is opened up by using the microscope – a lot of creepy crawlies are contained in pond water!
We then had a picnic lunch at the pavilion with hot dogs and toasted marshmallows. The readers all had a great time – ummmm, so did the librarians!!
