Mr. E. J. Snider, one of our long time associate board members, participates in the Will Rogers Day Parade in downtown Claremore.
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.
