Kejimkujik National Park
Today we are heading to Kejimikujik National Park (kedji-muh-KOO-jik) also known as Keji. We'll be looking at the old growth hemlock forests. Old growth means that the trees have not been taken down by any natural or unnatural forces since they began to grow. We'll also be counting deer droppings. It's supposed to rain, but it's been holding of when we're out working. We all hope that holds true today. I'm bringing my binoculars so I hope we can see some wildlife that we haven't seen yet. This week we'll go beaver watching and we'll go out and use a bat detector in the evening to detect the ultrasonic waves (sounds that we can't hear) that bat use for echolocation. It should be an interesting week!
