Field trips are always a great way to bring students together outside of their regular school environment. On October 10th, 2022, Ms. Snell and all her environmental classes, including AP, took a field trip to Eden Mill Nature Center.  

According to Snell, roughly 15 students departed the school at 9 o’clock in the morning to spend their day learning about problems associated with wood duck habitats and the importance of restoration. Students also learned about the current studies of environmental problems, destruction of habitats, species endangerment, and species restoration. They were able to take a tour of the mill, and then go canoeing on deer creek while gaining valuable knowledge.  

Ms. Snell described it as a “great day on the water”; she also added that she was “excited to go back out in the spring.”  Tyler Kirk, a student who attended the field trip, described it as a “fun and a great learning experience.”
