ROAR Field Trip with Second Graders
On April 26th, 2023 the Republic Second Grade class visited us out on the Conservation District Property!
From wetlands to the forest- students learned soil sampling techniques and how to survey tree plots.
2023 Lake Roosevelt Water Festival
In early September, kids (3rd-5th grade) traveled to Sherman Creek Fish Hatchery and the Kettle Falls Swimming Beach from all over Stevens and Ferry County to attend the Lake Roosevelt Water Festival.
Our scenic spot provided us with great examples of riparian zones and allowed us to show the differences between healthy and unhealthy riparian areas. Kids got to run around as water molecules, dodging plants, demonstrating on a physical level how important vegetation is to stream erosion and flow. We also got to play around in a stream table and watch up close how the lack of plants increases sedimentation in water.
