Daisies & Brownies -Earn your Daisy Animal Observer badge with Sacramento Splash! Come visit Critterville, Splashs sanctuary of rescued wildlife, to observe an animal of your choice. Spend some time with your new animal friend and take field notes. Engage your senses while learning about animal sounds you may hear in Central California. Listen to animal sounds and try to identify who you are hearing. Use your knowledge to play a game of animal charades with your fellow Girl Scouts. We will end the day with a short hike at the Mather vernal pool grassland preserve, in search of animal tracks. There will be time to sketch your findings and take notes on fun facts your Splash guide shares with you.
