This week we went to the Wild Life Sanctuary again to see what stage the geese where in with there nesting. On the way there we read a book about birds, eggs, and nests. It was actually very interesting to hear the kids read about the different birds. We have robins here and I had no idea they liked berries such as raspberries and cherries. As we walked we looked for nests and the birds we read about. We did see a lot of robins.
I love taking the kids to the Wild Life Sanctuary. It doesn’t matter what time of the year you go. You really never have the same experience as something new always pops up, or something magical happens with the animals. It’s spring here right now so it’s mating season for a lot of the animals. It was not a cold day, but not a warm day either. It was gloomy with no sunshine but it was great to get out and take that walk.
If your not from Wisconsin you wouldn’t know that Marinette County holds the keys to the most waterfalls in the state. Yesterday we took the kids to the north woods and visited three of them. One of them we didn’t have to really hike to. The others you had to hike the trails. They are beautiful and breath taking. Many people had the idea to stop and see the different falls. The colors are starting to turn but they are not quite at the peak yet. If you go to US Highway 2 in Michigan and go north they are peaking up there. The county parks there do charge a $3.00 fee, however that tag is good for all county parks that day.
Last week I took the kids to the Neville Museum as they had a new exhibit called Extreme Deep. The Extreme Deep is an amazing hands on exhibit exploring life at the bottom of the sea. It was presented by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHO). It depicts the mysteries of the ocean floor at greatest depths, newly discovered life forms, thermal vents, close up views of deep sea research submersibles as well as shipwrecks like the titanic. Visitors observe first hand technology that has only recently allowed men and woman to travel the ocean floor.
Last weekend we stopped at Spaceport Sheboygan and Cosmic Bounce. The kids had fun and hands on learning, along with some serious bouncing!
Spaceport Sheboygan is located in Sheboygan’s South Pier District, Spaceport offers hands on science fun and entertainment. New exhibits and old favorites. Land a space shuttle in the simulator or investigate launching a ring with electro-magnets. See actual Mission Control Consoles and much more.
