Students tour wetlands
The preschool class at Coal Country Hangout Youth Center in Northern Cambria recently took a field trip to the Tanoma Wetlands near Clymer.
The 10 children, with day care director Erin Bougher and preschool teacher Kim Salley, learned about wind and solar energy as well as the process used to remove iron from the local creek as a result of mine runoff. With the iron they collected, the children made a substance that could be used like chalk.
They also took a walk on the story trail, learned about recycling and made pinwheels. (Submitted photo)
