In the Last Month...

April showers didn't stop us!

We had so many fun events and programs last month. We had ACPS Earth and Space Science students on-site for field trips focusing on land use.

We visited ACPS Elementary and Middle schools in the After School programs to hold relay races to teach students how water is transported and filtered from reservoirs and other locations.

We attended ACPS High School Career Fairs to promote our Forestry 101 Career Camp.

We also attended the YMCA Healthy Kids Day, the Judy Center's School Readiness Fair, Washington County Head Start's Spring Fling, and Romney Elementary's Field Day.

We also hosted field trips for ACPS 4th grade Social Studies and Wiley Ford 1st and 2nd graders!
