Bureau Valley North takes wild field trip

The fifth-grade students at Bureau Valley North recently learned a fun, common-sense approach to preserving the environment. The kids took part in a free program offered by Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal financial services organization.

Modern Woodmen’s Ecology Awareness Program helps kids gain an understanding of the part people play in the environment. The program leads young people to make informed ecological choices. Each child receives several take-home souvenirs to reinforce ecological concepts.

The program is one in a series of free youth educational programs Modern Woodmen offers to school and youth groups nationwide. The ecology Awareness Program benefits thousands of kids annually.
