2015-16 Supply Lists
On September 23, the entire 6th grade class visited the Siuslaw Model Forest in Acra, NY to participate in their 45th Annual Environmental Awareness Day. We rotated through eight educational stations where volunteers engaged us in learning about soil, birds of prey, the stream table, forest management, Lyme disease, invasive species, Hudson river fish and dragon/damselflies. This field trip is an amazing supplement to our 6th grade Life Science curriculum and our learnings from this day will be incorporated into our studies throughout the entire year. If you are interested in visiting the Siuslaw Model Forest, it is open to the public! http://www.ccecolumbiagreene.org/natural-resources/siuslaw-model-forest.html
