November 3--  Third grade students at Montgomery County Elementary School are learning about different careers and in October got a visit from Wildlife Ranger Danielle O'Conner.

{mosimage}She described her job duties to our students and taught them about respecting wildlife and wildlife safety. The students were excited to see the baby alligator that she brought with her. They were thrilled to see one up close and some took the opportunity of touching the "gator".

{mosimage}Mrs. O'Conner demonstrated how to touch it with the snout being secured. She also warned that she was specially trained to handle an alligator and that no one without the training should be close enough to be able to touch an alligator in the wild. The boys and girls were very attentive and had lots of questions afterwards. Thank you, Mrs. O'Conner for your time and presentation.
