Annual School Forest Field Day

Every fall, all 10th grade Biology students and 9-12 Agriculture students take a field trip to the Milaca School Forest Environmental Learning Center to continue working on our forest management plan. While on the field trip, the students have the opportunity to do some of the following: get a tour of the forest, perform various types of water quality tests, cut down buckthorn (an invasive shrub), put up wood duck houses, bud cap sapling trees, scale timber and orienteer with a GPS. Students attend the field trip in two groups. Each group is at the forest site for half of the school day.
