Freshmen: We went on a birding walk on Monday with Melissa from the Quinnipiac River Valley Audubon Society. We will be going out again with her soon so the students can show off their improvements in bird identification (hint hint). We also developed initial plans for SAE, and will formalize those plans in the very near future. Students received their Greenhand FFA Degree this week as well!
Sophomores: Nick lead a plant walk at Ferguson Woods. We learned how good spice bush smells and how pretty it looks with it's yellow flowers on. Later in the week we explored plant reproduction and flower anatomy and physiology.
Juniors: We are working on putting a list of plants together for our pollinator garden. If you are looking to part with any plants that have multiplied in your garden, please think of us! We are looking for native plants that are beneficial to pollinators for food, habitat and escape shelter.
Seniors: We joined up with the Aquaculture class and started the CT Safe Boating class in order to earn the CT boating certificate.
ENR/Envirothon: Practice is on Wednesday after school. I am here until 5 that day. Talk with your teammates about your plans for the day- and let me know! You can also come during office hours on Wednesday too.
Nom Com: Gary Lin and Nick Moran will represent Wildlife Biology on the Lyman Hall FFA Chapter Nominating Committee this year.
Award Recipients: Congrats to Greenhand and Chapter degree recipients!
FFA SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE. Check Naviance.
