Two eighth grade teams participated in this hands-on educational event. Students learned about 5 areas of environmental science: forestry, soils, wildlife, aquatics and environmental issues (composting).
Team members include Kenzie Erb, Valerie Mobley, Jonathan Brand, Brittany Wilson, Micah Burns, Allison Slutz , Macie Schrecengost, Jared Rosenberger, Kyler Strotz, Carrie Barnes and Shannon Wolfe. Mr. and Mrs. Morckel advised and accompanied the two teams. Students spent additional time after school studying and preparing for the event.
The teams would like to thank Martig Farms for donating the team shirts, “Birds Luv’ Em”. West Branch Middle School has an Environmental Club, that meets monthly giving students a chance to learn about the wildlife, plants, and recycling in this area.
