Fifth Graders Become Conservationists for the Day

Fifth grade students at Lura Sharp Elementary were recently treated to a fun day of learning at Selkirk Shores State Park during the 34th annual Conservation Field Day.

Hosted by the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation District, students rotated through several conservation-themed stations, led by various volunteers. Some of the topics included trapping, fishing, and learning about local wildlife. 

“Conservation Day gives our students opportunities to learn more about our natural world and environment,” said Tom Trowbridge, a fifth grade teacher at Lura Sharp. “It gives them a chance to discover new interests they may not know exist or that they had never thought about pursuing.”
