Spend the day with us learning all about the soil and critters that live there.

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.
