Wildlife sightings? Aside from the high water pests like mosquitos and spiders, what interesting animals have you seen this week? We always like to keep track of sightings for our Nature Center records. The Bald Eagle babies are peaking their heads up over the nest, we hope that you all had a chance to see them on the Escape Cruise.
