Falling down a rabbit hole at Discovery Park.

Many a homeschooler are lovers of literature.  So, you can imagine the delight at having an opportunity to fall down actual rabbit holes at Discovery Park.  

And frankly, who doesn't love a good hole in the ground?  Filling them in was a first for Squad and quite popular, as was watering.  Matt, our forest steward from the Green Seattle Partnership hauled his own personal hoses in a backpack so we could hook up >50' away to water the native plantings.  Other work included digging out blackberry and mulching.   There is much to see in this 500+ acre historic park, we are looking forward to coming back.

UPDATE: Matt discussed the holes further with Park staff who think they may evidence of mountain beaver activity rather than rabbits.  Perhaps this is the beginning of a new piece of literature....
