The search is on! Will we be successful in finding this illusive creature? We will explore the legend of Bigfoot as we hike through some of more remote areas of camp. What kinds of evidence do animals leave behind? How do we know what kinds of animals live at the camp when we may not see them? How can the things animals leave behind (nests, bones, scat and trails) tell us about the secret lives they lead? We will also discuss the importance of myth and stories and how they bond communities together and are used to explain the unknown. As a final investigation we will learn about the unreliability of eyewitness accounts. Junior Girl Scouts will receive their Animal Habitats skill building badge.
