Charlotte resident Casandra Seamon wins “15 Minutes Outside,” by Rebecca Cohen for sharing her story of summer nature fun with her family. She’s been enjoying McDowell Nature Preserve in Charlotte with her husband and stepson, T.J. While hiking, they saw toads and a snake in the forest and stopped in at the nature center.
“One of the workers showed us typical animals which are found on the preserve. T.J., his father, and I enjoyed touching the reptile and the turtle which the nature center worker displayed for the crowd,” Seamon wrote. “The children attending the show were having a ball. We also found a goose feather. It was a fantastic family day of spending quality time together in a healthy learning atmosphere.”
