Today I hosted my first Virtual Field Trip. I took a 2nd grade class from Utah on a snake hike in hopes of finding a snake that emerged early from hibernation (it was 60 degree again).

As soon as we ended the VFT, I spotted a red-eared slider basking on a rock in the river. I snuck up and took a short video of the turtle so I could share it with the class later. Here is the video I got:
