Earth Day Field Trip
The yearly Earth Day field trip for Calhoun County Schools 4th Graders took place today at the Community Gardens. Students learned a number of life improving and environmentally friendly skills like food safety, electrical safety and water safety. Calhoun County Extension Coordinator Dr. David West says there’s more to children enjoying the outdoors than just getting them out there. Each year, Earth Day -- April 22 -- marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.
