Students Visit South Fork Natural History Museum for Research


Some A.E.P. students visited the South Fork Natural History Museum & Nature Center (SOFO) to work on some research for their animal projects. They were able to view, hold , and ask questions about snapping turtle babies that are being held there. Frank Quevedo allowed the students to come by for free and take photos and video for their projects. Students also learned what to do if they see a snapping turtle crossing the road and how to pick them up safely if needed.
