St. Luke's Preschoolers Visit

St. Lukes class

On May 4, 2018, 30 very curious youngsters from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Preschool visited the Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve.  Their teacher, Jennifer Gough, prepared a scavenger hunt guide for them to use in spotting plants, animals, rocks and other “finds.”

Kaarla AndersonKaarla Anderson (pink bow) imitated a duck when she saw a mallard swimming by.  Robins, no matter how common, still fascinate.  And the students marveled at the young bald eaglet sitting atop the nest.  “Do they eat worms?” one asked, a perfect opening to talk about Dyke Marsh's three active bald eagle nests and parents that bring fish to the nest for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack!
