On Feb 7th, the second FOR Ranger program of 2017 was presented to sixty-six students of Barrow Elementary teacher Katie Brown’s fifth grade science classes. Each student received a Ranger t-shirt and a packet of information about the San Bernard watershed. A discussion of the watershed and its environmental concerns was given by Ranger instructor Adalia Maudlin. Instructor Mike Goodson discussed the different fish species found in the San Bernard, after which, the students enthusiastically told their “mostly true” fish stories.
Photos of the lucky winners of a rod and reel, whose names were drawn from each of the four classes, are shown below.
