#1 My daughter spotted this in the water and said someone had been fishing. This is a fishing bobber that was lost by someone in the Beaver Pond in the CVNP. The red and white is a dead giveaway for any fisherman. A bobber holds the bait off the bottom. Imerie and Annie got this one.#2 This is Skunk Cabbage because of the smell from the plant if you rip the leaves. It likes wetlands and dampness as it grows. Congrats Annie for knowing this plant.
A shell from a Globose Snail, can you believe it. It's a lot easier when you see it all. Someone had some Escargot for dinner, the shell is empty. I don't know what the little bug looking things were on the shell but they added to the lack of identification. Look how small they actually are about 1/32".
