Ponca Elementary Student Council Field Trip

By Cindy Anderson


The Ponca Elementary Student Council took a field trip to Ponca State Park on Friday, May 7, 2021.  The purpose of the field trip was to do volunteer community service by helping naturalists Clayton and Kent clean and refill bird feeders and pick up sticks in the shooting range area of the park.  Students and park naturalists had a great time working together while also learning about plants and animals found at Ponca State Park and in Nebraska.

After stopping to eat a picnic lunch at the West shelter house, naturalist, Katie LaWare, lead the group on an hour hike to the Old Oak tree and back to the West shelter house.  Sasquatch was discovered hiding in the trees by the Old Oak tree, as well!  

Everyone also enjoyed trying their hand at archery with the supervision and help of naturalists; Katie, Clayton and Kent.
