PCMS Nature Navigators get outdoors in Sunny View

The latest exploration for the Nature Navigators, Polk County Middle School’s hiking club, came at Laura Baird’s private property in Sunny View.

The intrepid hikers got wet and wild investigating a creek. They caught an amphibian, a salamander and many invertebrates such as a crawdad and lots of snails. They also got to meet some fantastic vertebrates!

Baird’s three cats and dog hiked with students to the creek. Students also met a pet corn snake, chicken and turkey. One hiker had one of his dreams come true as he finally got to hug a turkey.
