        Dauset Trails was invited to present reptile programs at the Farm Safety Day in Griffin, and to the Story Time Reading group at the Butts and Monroe County libraries.
        The Spalding County Farm Bureau held a safety awareness day for kids in June. Dauset Trails helped with a venomous snake program including identification of venomous snakes and habitats and proper steps to take to avoid or recover from snake bite.
      The Story Time groups enjoyed a reptile program  which featured a pine snake and a painted turtle and lots of  interesting artifacts to go along with the theme.





            Our burro, or donkey, had her baby in early June (see front cover for picture). In July, two goats had babies. All can be seen at the Barnyard.
            On the Animal Trail, you can now see a beaver. This two and a half year old male was donated by the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. The beaver has a jaw alignment problem and is not  releasable  into the wild. He is doing well on the trail.



Fall is approaching (hooray!) and this means it's time to be thinking about the annual Scare Crow contest at Dauset Trails. Cash prizes for 1st., 2nd.  and 3rd. places.
The contest is in October- more details later.
