Marshall County, KS 2012
As you are about to see, Noah Busch organized quite a series of events for us to experience during this year’s field trip, which included:
- Camping out in Stella’s Meadow at Alcove Springs
- Teaching us how to construct and use common materials in capturing the tracks of small mammals
- Showing us the new downtown exhibit on Geologic Time in the Glaciated Region in Blue Rapids, and famous Black Squirrels of Marysville
- Checking turtle traps along Spring Creek, and being witnessing to a rare herpetological event (see the Kansas Herpetology Facebook for details)
- Spending time at his family’s organic farm where we were treated to organic hot dogs and such, learned about organic farming from Noah’s mother Nancy Vogelsberg-Busch, took a bird watching tour with Dr. John Quinn from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and stopped to eat some berries, look for some russian thistle weevils, and do a bit of bee handling…
Thanks again, Noah!
By the way, it looks like someone started a KABT Facebook Page. Like it and share your links, etc… I think we need to start a Facebook Group though so that I can post images to an ablum. It appears that I can only upload a single image to a page.
