The tall forested dunes of Michigan offer great habitats for animals like turtles, treefrogs, and hawks. Transition forests have three zones where you can spot wildlife. Eastern box turtles move slow but carry their camouflage with them. See what Peter carries in his hiking pack. Wood turtles like to live near moving water. Grey tree frogs can change color, and even freeze solid without dying. Peter stops at the Outdoor Discovery Center to meet a red-shouldered hawk which thrive in the forest canopy.
