Powell Environmental Science class visits Ijams
The AP Environmental Science class from Powell High School spent half a day at Ijams last week. The class is taught by Will Roberts.
The students spent the morning session with Peg Beute and Sabrina DeVault talking about water quality on a hike that included the River Trail and Toll Creek.
After lunch, the topic was birds with the Ijams bird guy. The session included a visit to the Lost Species Exhibit—a brief discussion of the passenger pigeon, Carolina parakeet and ivory-billed woodpecker—and a walk to the Ijams Homesite with a stop to see the red-tailed hawk. Also along for the outing was Powell teacher Beth Mooney.
Thanks for your visit!
