Day 1 with Hugh at the Bat House!
Posted: Sun, Jul 21, 2013
Location: Daintree Rainforest, Australia
Today we woke up to the smell of nature. We had cereal for breakfast and then went for a forest walk led by Hugh. We went for a walk through the Daintree Rainforest on the board walk and got a long lesson on each kind of leaf. After the walk, we went back to the Bat House and had some sandwiches for lunch. In the afternoon, we went to the beach to do some community service. We tore out coconut plants from the beach since they are an invasive species that don’t allow the natural plants to grow. We also collected trash from the shores. After our work, we played in the ocean waves and hung out on the beach. For dinner we had Mexican, which was delicious! Everyone especially loved the homemade salsa, made of fresh veggies from the garden!
