Pack 1980 Scouts Summer Hike at Duke Farms

Posted on Jul 15 2017 - 5:36pm

A small group of Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts were up for the challenge of a 90+ degree summer day in their quest to seek out wildlife at Duke Farms.  The boys hiked ~3 miles and started by observing a myriad of insect life in the meadows.  A couple scouts even captured a video of a group of ants working together to carry a dead beetle to complete a Webelos "Into the Wild" requirement..  All of the scouts pulled out their binoculars to get a closer look at agreat blue heron who had swooped to the shoreline of Great Falls Lake to look for lunch.  The scouts later used binoculars to view a painted turtle who was swimming.  The scouts spotted several other birds in the trees and meadows, including a robin, and eastern blue bird, and a red-winged blackbird and also observed several different butterflies, including a monarch, an eastern tiger swallowtail, and a pearl crescent.  Squirrels and chipmunks were the only mammals the scouts spotted during their visit.
