Accent on Academics
Thomas County Central High School Advanced Placement Environmental Science class and Envirothon team members recently spent two days completing field work at Lost Creek Forest. “The trip to the woods gave us a glimpse into some of the activities of environmentalists,” student Riley Jones said. “We took a lot of things we have learned in our environmental class and applied them to the trip. Our guides challenged us by putting us in the shoes of environmental scientists, asking us to analyze the forest and make decisions that environmentalists would make.” Activities the young scientists conducted included soil analysis, water quality studies, a canopy study, discussion of prescribed burns, and tree coring.
