FOR Ranger Program at Wild Peach Elementary
Posted on May 23rd, 2016

 
A FOR Ranger presentation was held on Tuesday, May 17, at Wild Peach Elementary School. Forty-eight fifth grade science students learned about the San Bernard River watershed and its environmental concerns. Points-of-interest along the river were also discussed. A fish identification of species found in the river followed and then “mostly-true” fish tales were reeled off by the students. Last on the program was an active nautical knot tying session where students learned the proper knots to secure a boat to a dock.
