MARION — The Marion Natural History Museum’s afterschool group took a trip to Ram Island in Marion on Wednesday, June 8.

The students had a chance to watch various crabs in the salt marsh, visit several of the occupied osprey nests, and walk the shoreline looking for shells.  

They also visited Clara and Darcy, the pet donkeys of Dr. Michael Moore and Hannah Moore, who allowed the students to visit the island’s many natural areas.
