For this challenge everyone in the family came out for the adventure except my dad. Everything I saw had a lesson and everything I learned either applied or will apply to other challenges.
Our Coastal:Explorer the Wildlife of the Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve Challenge was a lot of fun. We saw birds, bees, plants, toads, snakes & so much more with Sara as our guide.
We enjoyed our time together as a family getting ready to be out in nature! Aug 13, 2016
We just finished our 2nd challenge! Go Team Gilmore!!!
This was our challenge at Goose Island. We weren't there very long because the mosquitos were real bad despite the repellents we were using. I also became Junior Ranger for Texas State Parks while we were there.
This challenge took a little time for me because there were things I had seen during other challenges that have also been in books I've read that are important to the environment & of historical importance to Texas. So, when I saw these things, I researched them more, had to find them, & had to draw one because it isn't in bloom until February or March.

We went to the Joan and Scott Paradise Pond in Port Aransas and I focused my attention on an invasive plant that threatens the life of other plants, animals, & humans at the center.
