EPES students explore the great outdoors at MacKenzie Center

On May 16, fourth grade students from Eagle Point Elementary school visited the Midwest Outdoor Heritage Education Expo at the MacKenzie Center in Poynette.

The Expo is an annual event held for students in 4th through 6th grades. According to their website, the Outdoor Heritage Education Center was founded in 1998, and continues to fulfill its mission: To increase the public’s understanding, appreciation and sense of stewardship for natural resources, professional resource management and America’s outdoor heritage.

“The Expo offers a unique field trip where students can be face-to-face with live wolves, lynx, badger, otter, bison and eagles, and participate in archery, airgun, fisheries, forestry, wildlife and so many other fun activities, all in one location. Many activities correlate with multi-discipline state and national education standards.” (Source: OHEC website)
