Yesterday the 8thgrade honors students attended a field trip at Moraine State Park as part of a grant for the Kids to Parks contest #kidstoparksday won by Jenna McFarland for $1,000.00.  The students and Buddy Bison #buddybison learned about the history of Lake Arthur, Pennsylvania mammals and Pennsylvania tree identification.  It was a wonderful learning opportunity and a huge thanks goes out to the NATIONAL PARK TRUST for their generosity.
