Grant Spotlight Vernal Pool Study
Each spring, our fifth grade students venture out into local vernal pools to explore, identify and collect. Several years ago, WEST funded the purchase of waders and collection nets for this annual field trip. This year, funding from Wrentham Co-operative Bank and WEST, provided teachers with a laboratory component to this exciting exploration to further students learning and scientific observation.
