The Fort Stewart Forestry Department brought a “field trip” to the Frank Long Elementary 3 rd grade. We learned about habitats and different animals found in our area. We also were able to touch a live alligator and a gopher tortoise. We ended the field trip with a walk on our nature path. The forestry men were our guides and they pointed out many different things along the way. We had a lot of fun!
This presentation shows the highlights of our field trip.
Alligators can grow quite large. This “guy” was found on Fort Stewart.
These are pictures of tortoises that live on Ft. Stewart. The one on the top left is a shell that was found on FSGA. The instructor was showing us how he gets the tortoises to come out of their shells.
We were given the chance to touch the gopher tortoise. Mrs. Turner poses with the gopher tortoise. This particular tortoise is a resident at the FSGA Forestry Department.
