Guest Blogger: Jarred Johnson | USFWS Summer Intern
The Rappahannock River National Wildlife Refuge’s Youth Conservation Corp had a chance to experience a great opportunity to engage and learn a crucial part to Virginia’s history.
The crew was able to receive extensive background knowledge about the Menokin site and how it came to be. The crew experienced a full tour of the house as we walked around the building, down into the cellar, and up on to the main floor!
Kayaking along Cat Point Creek was another highlight, as we paddled we saw Bald Eagles, Wood ducks, and much more wildlife.
As for the afternoon, attentions were set on a professor from William Mary who discuses information about the stones that were used to build the house. Another successful Environmental Education Day for the YCC crew.
Thank you again to everyone at the Menokin site.
The Menokin Foundation would like to thank USFWS, the Youth Conservation Corps, these summer interns, and most of all Jarred for sending us this post. He’s not in any of the pictures because he was taking them. Here’s one of him from Dr. Bailey’s geology lecture.
