Chongming Island Wetland 3rd Grade Field Trip

For Yan Yuan's (Mark) 3rd Grade field trip from Concordia they went to a bird sanctuary, or at least a stop over point for birds migrating between Russia and Southeast Asia/Australia, at least somewhere hot.  They were just resting here.

The bus ride to the island was fun.  EJ, Cole and I talked a lot about Minecraft.  When we got to the wetlands we started out walking on this path with this purple cabbage stuff (Kale) around the outside of the walkway.  Then we crossed the bridge to place where we were going to have lunch a little later.  We went to the bathroom and then we went outside and had a few group pictures.  Then we went on this pathway, I saw a few birds.  There was a lot of tall grass around the pathway - it looked kinda like wheat.  Then after the big walk we came to this place where there was a lot of stuffed birds, dead fish, skeletons in one spot.  Mostly fish skeletons.  

Look out tower

After that we went on this big hike around the park and we saw a few interesting things.  Well we really didn't see that much since we were too busy talking.  After the walk we went back to the buses and rode about 10 minutes to a different part of the park.  Then we rode on a boat and saw a lot of wheat-type plants.  Then we got off the boat and walked to where we were going to have lunch and ate lunch.  Then we got on the bus right after lunch and went home.

Purple Cabbage - tons of this
