With our first steps on the path, we encountered a baby snapper in the middle of the trail!

Many builders considered it to be, "...about the cutest thing ever."

There were lots of crayfish, snails and the claw of what was temporarily believed to be a lobster.

We decided to keep the baby snapper in a bucket for a bit to watch her. We also observed a few terrestrial frogs before releasing them.

The Mourning Dove we had been watching all week finally gave us a view of her chicks! A family with the names: Blueberry, Rhubarb, Pancake and Pickle. The kids always correct me when I refer to them by the wrong names, and I'm obviously still not sure which is which.

Following our afternoon build we went on one last bike ride to the river to look for crayfish and whatever else we could find. There was some serious creature fever spreading...and whispers that this river had sea lamprey!
