PIQUA — More than 100 students from Piqua Central Intermediate School recently took a trip to Glen Helen Nature Preserve in Yellow Springs, where they learned about ecosystems, how to explore and appreciate nature, ways to take care of the environment, and how to work together as a team.
The youngsters also took daily nature hikes and explored animals in their natural habitats. In addition, they did not use napkins or other paper products during their stay and were taught the importance of not wasting food.
The Piqua Education Foundation gave a grant for $7,500 to Piqua Central Intermediate School to help with the cost of the trip. Thanks to that funding, the school was able to send 123 students to Glen Helen.
Fundraisers at Wings and Rings, as well as donations from French Oil helped with the cost of shirts and trip expenses.
