Further down the walk, they had this beautiful Black Indigo Snake
Believe it or not they are naturally very friendly with humans... 
 I even let him crawl up my arm for this close-up

 
There were lectures in the stadium each hour... where they talked about things like Florida friendly landscaping, healthy ponds and canals, invasive exotic plants, and sea turtles of SW Florida

 
Misquito control was there to talk about mosquito's
and how you can keep them from living near your house
especially these really, really large ones...
with things like mosquito fish that they will give you
for your pond, that will eat the larva before they can fly

 
Some kids enjoyed learning about animal tracks
by looking and touching these rubber animal feet replicas
Others learned by pressing them into the sand to see what kind of tracks (foot prints) each of the different animals leave behind as they walk.  I think its a great idea that they're teaching the kids about this.

Here are a few by Samantha Hultgren.  You can visit her photo webpage at www.theMKT.com

Art by Sheri  -  www.fineartcolony.com  -   (918) 633-1771
Sheri had her own art display, but had an empty canvas set up where anyone could stop and make their own changes.
I think it was a great way to get a brush into these little hands... 
not to mention the great masterpiece she could wind
up with by the end of the day.
