TOWN OF CHENANGO (WBNG) — Michael Breed’s environmental science class constructed eco-columns from the pond near the district’s outdoor learning center .
This is the first time Breed’s class is getting the chance to use the outdoor learning center.
The center was built in February, but due to the pandemic, students were not able to use it until this school year.
The outdoor learning center has a classroom and a garage door to open for students to have class either indoors or outdoors.
Breed says his class is going to try to use the center as much as they can. It has heating and air conditioning.
Breed says this learning center is allowing his students to see the things they are talking about in class in person.
“Being in the field, collecting data,” Breed said. “We have all kinds of plans. We want to do an interpretive trail. Maybe do some fish tagging because there are bass in this little pond.”
The center is open for all grades in the district to use. The district has plans to add solar panels in the future.
