Maude Saunders fifth graders participated in the Emerald Coast Science Center Bio-Blitz on Wednesday.  As field scientists, they learned to collect samples which they then identified, categorized and photographed.  They were surprised to find that the area around Maude Saunders is full of interesting plants and animals.  All photos will be uploaded to the iNaturalist website to share with other nature-lovers and scientists.
