Rush Henrietta 7th grade students from Roth and Burger Middle Schools participated in an Environmental Field Camp at Tinker Nature Park. Field stations were run by AP Environmental Science students from the Senior High School and consisted of 7 topics: Population Size, Water Quality, Predator - Prey Cycles, Soil Testing, Geo-caching & Maps, Adaptations and Microscopic Aquatic Life.The field camp ran for a week and we were really impressed with the students, not only with their behavior and respectfulness of the park but also with their interest in the activities at each field station. Welook forward to having them again next year.
Cody Ernst, BSA Troop 7, recently completed his Eagle Scout Project with a landscape restoration project at the Hansen Nature Center. The overgrowth, and weeds were removed, rock wall repaired and the area planted with native shrubs and mulched.
