In addition to setting the trap, we also found a deceased turtle while we were there that has apparently been marked by DSC for their turtle study. We brought it back to school (wrapped in waders!) and consulted with our DSC expert on how we could preserve its shell for future study. He suggested we bury it on the school grounds and let the decomposers go to work! Our Fourth grade team worked together to do this after school, as it was already beginning to decay. We hope to dig it up in the fall to retrieve the shell and any bones. I am truly excited by the work and learning we are able to do here at Brookwood! Thank you for allowing your children to go on this journey with me!
