It is great to be back at The Garden School and I want to thank Ki Kate for subbing for me last week. We have an exciting day planned tomorrow with Ari's birthday celebration and the DeWillers amphibian presentations. Our activities on Thursday, inside and outside, are all focused on one of my favorites subjects: sea turtles. You don't need boots, just some good tennis shoes or running shoes and a jacket.
I want to remind you to join me at the annual open house of The Amphibian Foundation. It will be this Friday from 6:00 to 10:00pm, but come anytime you'd like and for as long as you'd like. There is no charge. We'll be at Blue Heron Nature Preserve, 4055 Roswell Road NE, Atlanta. Highlights include the Ribbit Exhibit of amphibian art and photos, a backstage tour to see where the flatwoods salamanders are raised, food and drink, and the opportunity to hold a frog, a toad, a salamander, a turtle, and a snake. Bring your whole family!

Quote from Carter Roberts, President & CEO of World Wildlife Fund:
"People sometimes ask me what I worry about most. Climate change? Species loss? Habitat destruction? I worry about all those issues. But what I worry about most is running out of planet."
See you down the road,
