Every day we ask Alaskans where we can see a moose. Every day they say the same thing. They are all over town. They are in my yard. But we have not seen one. Until this afternoon. First we tried driving around some neighborhods that people had told us about. No luck.
Then we tried a park area where we met a very nice man named Casey with the Air National Guard and his dog Rue. He told us they are in the park behind his house which was where we were currently standing. We walked around the park. No luck.
After a quick coffee break, we headed towards another park Casey had suggested. As we drove along the street, I spotted a moose! He was in a yard eating plants. Yea!
I am a first grade teacher and I am so excited to participate in this project with my colleagues.
