We went with my friends, Joshua and Chase, to Weedon Island for a scallop study. We had a blast playing in the nature center before our class.
In the class we learned a LOT about scallops. I loved learning about their eyes the most. Then we got to walk down to the boat dock and pull up a trap full of baby scallops. Our job was to measure all the scallops, check them for good health and then clean the trap and put them back in the water.
I learned how to use calipers.
We all liked the orange scallop the best. It was also one of the biggest scallops.
When we finished the class we took a short nature hike and saw a wild gopher tortoise. It hissed a LOT!
