A field trip for the future: Students receive environmental education on the Fenholloway River
Georgia-Pacific is working to develop the next generation of scientists and engineers by supporting hands-on environmental projects in schools.
Georgia-Pacific recently teamed with Taylor County High School in Perry, Fla. to help design an educational field trip to the Fenholloway River.
The field trip allowed students the chance to act as scientists by measuring things such as dissolved oxygen, pH balance and the effects of human impact on our river system.
“What they’re learning in one day here, I could not recreate for them in a week’s time in a classroom,” said Taylor County AP Honors Science teacher PJ Piland.
