Agriscience & Environmental Technologies students visit Independence Oaks

Students attending the Northwest Agriscience & Environmental Technologies program work alongside professionals in hydroponics, veterinary science, sustainable agriculture, environmental engineering, and conservation. Additionally, students can conduct hands-on activities and experiments in animal, plant, and environmental sciences. This program uses advanced technology to develop ethical and viable solutions to real-world environmental problems.

Recently, students went on a field trip to Crooked Lake in Independence Oaks. They took water samples and tested water temperature. Additionally, students identified multiple species of fish. Types found included Blue Gill, Rock Bass, War Mouth, Pumpkin Seed, Large Mouth Bass, Perch, and Sunfish.
