Back when Judy was in town, we decided to fill one weekend morning by checking out a local nature center: the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.
There were several animals to see, including this owl which Bennett kept "Whoo"-ing at.
And this snake, which we all petted - including June!
There was a cute little educational area about the local wildlife.
We probably could have spent a little more time inside, but we really wanted to come so we could walk around the nature trails. Of course the trails were pretty dry and crispy at this point in our record-breaking drought, but it was still fun.
We saw several deer and some turkeys while we were there.
And afterward we went out for an early lunch.
I definitely want to head back to Effie Yeaw again sometime...especially once we get a little rain!
