Saturday, September 15th
Gathering at 10am at the I Street and Ramona Gateway of Tacony Park, we split up into three separate groups to cover different areas of the park. Those more interested in documenting butterflies and species of birds explored the meadow area. Warblers, heron, swallows, and woodpeckers are just a few of the species spotted by the meadow group. Those looking for a chance to get closer to the water could join the creek group in search for aquatic life in the Frankford Creek. With boots, fishing rods, and nets, the creek group was able to collect photos of fish and other aquatic life such as the Banded Killfish, Eastern Red-Backed Salamander, and the Northern Watersnake for our project.
