WILL ROGERS JUNIOR HIGH SCIENCE STUDENTS VISIT THE RESERVE

The Junior High Science students from Mrs. Skimbo's Science class walked the trails at the Reserve and studied a variety of subjects including soil sampling.  This simple procedure not only allowed a "hands on lesson" but later in the week when they began a lesson on ocean sampling they were better able to understand and visulaize the proceudure.
