Seventh Grade Students Study Invasive Species

Seventh grade students at Harrison Middle School will be expanding their knowledge of local invasive species by connecting with Kyle Warren, Head Steward for the Royal River Conservation Trust.

On Thursday, September 27, Kyle and a fellow environmental educator will be guest lecturers in all seventh grade science classes. On the following Thursday, our students will travel across town to the Spear Farm Estuary Preserve to get a firsthand look at the multiple invasive plant species there. They will be charged with the task of identifying and even removing some of these species while “in the field”. Mr. McDonough and Mr. Cuthbert are also looking at the possibility of adding a service component to the project by organizing a student-involved trail maintenance outing in the coming weeks.

We'll keep you posted on this exciting project!
