Good Job EcoMeet Teams!
Eleven middles schools participated in the 2015 EcoMeet competition at Douglas-Hart Nature Center. Student teams of 3-6 had to prepare by studying 3 assigned nature-topics:

After competitive tests and ID challenges on Nov. 10th, the top-ranking three schools took home the awards! GOOD JOB TO ALL THE STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED & LEARNED!
