We look a trip down to Weedon Island for a scallop program. We had a blast in the hands-on area.
We hiked down to the docks and helped pull up a trap that floats in the water that holds the scallops.
We learned how to measure and check the scallops to make sure they were still healthy. They are trying to see how long they take to grow and will measure them once a month.
My favorite was the orange one. I named it “Orange”.
After out scallop class we took a quick hike around a trial. We crossed paths with a gopher tortoise. He let us pet him but he hissed and pulled his head in. Very cool!
