webIMG_0803On Earth Day, the environmental science class took a field trip to the Great Valley Nature Center to learn about the watershed. They spent the morning testing the water quality in both a pond and a stream, and looked at different macroinvertebrates to help determine the health of the ecosystem.

After analyzing the water results, they moved on to learning about different birds of prey in the wild. They were given the opportunity to hold a Screech Owl.
