Twenty students from the Kingsford Middle School will be embarking on an adventure to Isle Royale starting Tuesday morning. The field trip is a four-night campout on the island, where students will be studying the island's history, geology, and invasive species present there.
Last year was the first time the school made a visit there, where students were taught by some of the rangers associated with the national park on the island. ??I??m looking forward to the educational purpose and learning about all the nature and stuff that we have in Michigan,?? said student, Olivia Allen. ??I want to go because it sounds fun and I will learn about all of the nature and stuff.??
Those in charge of the trip say it's not just for learning about the outdoors but also about becoming good leaders.
