RE: School of the Wild expands
Contact: Tara Wachendorf, Public Relations Director

Thanks to generous support from GreenState Credit Union, University of Iowa’s School of the Wild, the popular program 6th graders from the Iowa City Community School District have taken part in for 20 years, is now being offered to all school districts in Johnson County. During the week of May 3rd-7th, fifth grade students from Lone Tree explored local natural areas to learn about woodlands, wetlands, prairies, birds, and archaeology. Next week, 5th graders from the Clear Creek Amana School District will have their opportunity to learn about these topics at Johnson County’s Kent Park. During School of the Wild, students participate in hands-on activities that awaken awareness, nurture appreciation, and inspire action for all things ‘wild’.
