Thompson Woods worries all bark, no bite

Cheyenne Adams, a sophomore from Normal studying zoology, watches a turtle Tuesday in a clearing in Thompson Woods.  When deciding to come to SIU, Adams said one of the biggest appeals to her was the woods.  “If this had been a park with benches and a mowed lawn I wouldn’t have been nearly as excited,” she said, “this turtle wouldn’t even be here if this was a park.”
