Warsaw, VA – On Friday, April 19th, a group of students from EHS embarked on a field trip to the Rappahannock River Valley Wildlife Refuge's Hutchinson Tract, delving into a hands-on research project centered on the area's diverse tree populations.

Guided by their science curriculum's focus on real-world applications, the students were tasked with collecting vital data on the distribution of trees across different environmental settings within the refuge. This data collection is part of a larger analysis project aimed at understanding the ecological dynamics of the region.

The Rappahannock River Valley Wildlife Refuge, known for its rich biodiversity, provided a perfect backdrop for the educational venture. By studying these natural habitats, students not only contribute to their academic growth but also to the conservation efforts of the refuge.

With the support of the local community and the dedication of EHS's faculty, these environmentalists are making meaningful contributions to their education and environmental conservation efforts within Virginia.
