R-H Senior High School AP Biology and Environmental Science students ran a week long field camp at Tinker Nature Park for Roth and Burger students the week of June 6th.

Topics of study included Population density, water quality analysis, Predator-Prey cycles,
Soil testing, Orienteering and Maps, Adaptations and Microscopic Aquatic Life.

Each station was designed and taught by students from the high school. Middle school students rotated from station to station throughout the day.

The R-H community should be proud of their students for conducting a program of this scope. The field camp provides a hands-on exploration of the environmental sciences and judging by the student interest and participation is a very popular and successful program. The respect the students showed the park and facilities deserves recognition as well. I look forward to working with the R-H staff and students next year.
