Last week, when the temperatures were 90 or higher, throngs of kids were at camps in Wilton having a blast. They weren’t worried about the heat. What they were worried about was getting a turn with some animals.
Whether it’s Woodcock Nature Center or Ambler Farm, the kids were anxious to hold, pet, brush, follow, or just watch animals of all sorts. Ambler has the farm critters — sheep, goats, rabbits, pigs, chickens, and geese. Woodcock’s resident animals are more exotic — snakes, turtles, lizards, frogs, toads, giant insects, and birds of prey.
