There once was a box turtle named Teddy, who was looking for a friend.
He walked to the wetland but couldn’t find anyone there.
He walked to the prairie but couldn’t find anyone there either.
He walked through the forest.
He even went to a campsite to look for a friend. But no one was in sight.
Teddy was sad that he was still alone.
But then, Teddy heard some noise. It was his friends waking up from their naps! They all came out to play, making Teddy a very happy turtle.
When you’re stuck inside, it’s fun to be creative and make up stories with your kids. Stop in the Dickinson County Nature Center and visit the Explore Your Playful Nature kids area for an inspiring spot to create your own stories.
While your there, meet with our special animal ambassadors, like Teddy, Honey the hedgehog, Leo the northern leopard frog and Al the American Toad.
