Fifth and sixth graders throughout the district experienced hands-on science this spring through a watershed and wetlands field experience at DeCoursey Park and the Washington State University (WSU) Research and Extension Center Little Barn Pond and Wetland.

 

 

Students learned about improving the health of the ecosystem and the watershed as they observed the wetlands and conducted field tests related to the fifth- and sixth-grade science curriculum. The trips are possible thanks to a partnership between the school district and the WSU Extension Center, as well as multiple hands-on investigations supported by the Pacific Education Institute.
