Ring UPK Students Learn More About Nature During an Audubon Visit

Ring Elementary School UPK students saw baby  geese ducklings with their mother, smelled skunk cabbage and touched snails as part of  a recent visit to the Jamestown Audubon Society. The students walked the trails and learned more about the animals and plants they saw along the way.

“I find the Audubon to be a beautiful asset to our community,” said Ring UPK teacher Terry Ortiz. “Children learn best when being actively engaged.  Pair academics with discovering the natural world, and one has found a recipe for successfully educating individuals of all ages.”
