Back in November, eighth grade students ventured out to the old-growth forest at Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. They identified trees, took note of the various types of fungus growing in all types of places and observed the various ecosystems thriving in the forest.

Students also saw the effects of the invasive Wolly Adelgid on our native Hemlock trees. Students learned that this critter has devastated the Hemlock population in the southern Appalachians.
