Outdoor classroom

Lauren Norvell’s freshman biology class from Wood Memorial High School visited the Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge before schools closed. The students had the opportunity to hike on the refuge and learn about different ecosystems. On the hike, they came upon a box turtle that had previously been studied at the refuge and still had its identification number visible. Students identifed the turtle’s number and also collected macro invertebrates from the marsh and learned how to test water quality using those invertebrates.
