WSB’s 6th Grade Visits Oregon Ridge Nature Center

Last Wednesday, Ms. Arnold’s 6th grade class had the pleasure of visiting Oregon Ridge Nature Center. The class is currently studying geology and mineralogy, and Oregon Ridge has a wonderful hand-on program about identifying the rocks and minerals of our local Piedmont watershed. The tour also incorporated landscape reading skills as we examined the landscape in relationship to its historical use. Please enjoy the photos below of our trip. Oregon Ridge is a mere 15 minute drive from WSB. Make it a point to visit this wonderful site. They offer an amazing array of nature programing that are open to the public. (And many of which are free!)
