On this field trip, there are 3 fantastic parts: a guided wooden boat ride through the swamp, a class on the life cycle of insects with a trip into the butterfly house, and a class on reptiles where the kinders actually get to touch several reptiles including a box turtle and a corn snake.
Here are some photos from our guided boat ride through the swamp:

|Another alligator (much larger one) with only it's head sticking out of the swamp|
