Sandhill Cranes…. April 13, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — deeshack @ 4:53 pm

I really love Sandhill Cranes ..and the connection they have to Wauchula…

Wauchula was named by the Florida Southern Railway when it extended south in 1886 and built a depot in the area, which still exists today. The name was derived from the Miccosoukee Indian word Wa-tu-la-ha-kee, meaning “call of the sand hill crane“.

So our Homeschooled Students have more Sandhill Crane art. We are hoping to make more of these and then use as a Fund Raising project for the Library to help build up our Children and Family DVD collection… here are the newest Sandhill Cranes. These will eventually be pins or brooches to wear… enjoy.

These are the greatest bunch of children and the parents are amazing…especially when they put up with some of my crazy ideas…Thanks to you all!!
