Dabney S. Lancaster Community
Clifton Forge, Virginia
We started the day by reviewing and practicing our forestry protocol.
Setting up a 50 m transect.
Measuring the dbh of a tree.
And the final step -- the 1 meter square for groundcover estimates.
After lunch, we visited the vernal pool.

We finished our time at Douthat State Park with a geocaching exercise.
A small turtle found in the vernal pool
The ground was littered with lots of these tiny toads. Each one about the size of a thumbnail.
