 Rush-Henrietta Winslow Elementary Second Grade Students visited the Tinker Homestead and Farm Museum to learn about 19th Century Farm Life in Henrietta. Hansen Nature Center also hosted a Field Camp for all Rush-Henrietta 7th Grade Students. Field stations were run by Students from R-H High School.
