Blue Valley elementary students recently attended summer environmental workshops at the Carolyn Ball Blair Wilderness Science Center, an educational facility created with the goal of providing authentic learning opportunities for students. The Wilderness Science Center is an area for students to study natural plant and animal life. The 33 acre property includes old and new growth forest, prairie, small wetland, wetland forest, wet meadow, multiple streams and riparian corridor. Students can study four ecosystems - prairie, forest, river and wetland. This is the 10th year that Blue Valley has held summer environmental workshops for students.
