Molasses is an inspired name for a tortoise (you know, “slow as molasses . . .”), so I was surprised to see how fast this little guy (gal?) can scoot around. While Erica provided information about the care and feeding of a desert tortoise, Molasses made several laps around the table to check out the in-progress drawings students were sketching of him in their nature journals. Molasses mostly eats lettuce, and lots of it.
Later this week, Persephone, the flying squirrel, will be returning to Art Farm for another guest appearance.
Next week is the last camp for the summer season. There is still time to enroll. For more information, call 760-688-6147 or email us at director@CarlsbadArtFarm.com. Information about camp and printable forms are available at our website under the “Camp” tab.
