Naturalists Lead Campus Scavenger Hunt and Check Bluebird Nesting Boxes

Naturalists from Black Hill took 1st and 2nd graders on a nature and wildlife scavenger hunt around the Barnesville School campus yesterday.

They found empty bird nests and praying mantis egg case.

They also looked inside the Bluebird nesting boxes installed around campus by last year's 6th grade.

Today, the kids went to Black Hill where they learned about worms and the role they play in gardens, as well as which animals rely on worms as a food source.

While the naturalists were on campus, they trained our entire faculty on how to monitor the Bluebird nesting boxes.
