Chandra Ziegler’s kindergarten-1 class at Forest Park celebrated Earth Day in many ways. The students used minimal electronics, kept only one row of lights on, turned trash to treasure by creating recycled flowers, read many books, and picked up trash around the school property. The students were eager to help clean the earth and wanted to do more. Pictured, from left, front row, Noah Starr, Bella Tarter, Cole Purrenhage, Nadia Hansen and Landon Ross; second row, Cameron Hinske, Hayden Anderson, Tressa Scarlassara and Lily Hiltonen; third row, Kierra Hollingsworth, Amirah Gorman and Tessa Bartoszek; fourth row, Khali Woollard, Vic Giuliani, Eli Brzoznowski, Trent Martin and Liam Kolby.

The Iron River just off U.S. 2 west of town is a favorite trout fishing spot because of its deep, cold waters. With the opening of trout season on Aril 26, fishermen hope that all the snow will have left the banks and the water will be open.

The Forest Park Environmental Science class went to the Listening Inn on March 26 to collect data on mammals. The students crosscountry skied through the trails, stopping to collect data on mammal tracks. Students observed coyote, fisher, shrew, deer, snowshoe hare and one wolf track. Student scientists used the stride, straddle, track length and width along with other spoor to identify the mammals. Carol and Les Kuhfal, owners of the Listening Inn, welcomed students to their log cabin inn on Clark Road near Amasa. They encourage other student groups to come out and explore nature.
