Biofact Training Session for FoDip Ambassadors





Several members of FoDIP met on the island for a "Biofact" training session, conducted by Park Supervisor Katherine Hendrickson and Park Naturalist Erick Espana in preparation for the creation of the biofact boxes, an exploratory activity that will be available at the Kiosk on Deerfield Island Park.
Visitors to the Island will have the chance to examine specimens in biofact boxes 
such as animal bones, owl pellets, fossils, shells, insects, horseshoe crab molts, turtle vertebrate and scutes, among other natural items. Participants will be encouraged to 
examine, analyze, compare and contrast, and refer to guides to try to identify these
amazing body parts, and discover how animals are adapted for survival.
