our own backyard at the Upper Tampa Bay Park
on Hillsborough Avenue. Ranger Brian taught us
about snakes, turtles, the mangroves, fiddler crabs,
the birds and flying mullet!
    We even got to go in a tidepool and catch
crabs and little fish! The scouts thank Den leaders
Greg Chesney and Doug Wood. It was a really fun
