Squirrel Day!

Hang in there Jennifer. Today we have a field trip to see the squirrels and part of your research team!


Thanks Judy. Very excited to meet them!

Thanks for being excited about the trip, and let me know if there's anything you want to learn more about as I go!

You are off and away!
