Conservation
Field Day

Every September, 5th and 6th grade students clue in to conservation at the annual Lynn Galusha Memorial Conservation Field Day. Groups of students hike to 6 stations where they learn about exciting topics from the natural resource experts.

Presentations have ranged from invasive species, wetlands, and wilderness survival to groundwater, forestry, and energy conservation.
