Forestry Students Turn ESC Into Outdoor Elementary Classroom


Learning 'the ropes'Knowledgeable forest technology students at Penn College’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center ensured that Wednesday’s annual observance of Earth Day wasn’t merely a day out of school or just a chance to tromp through the mud for fifth-graders from Elimsport Elementary School. Professor Dennis F. Ringling’s students staffed various environmental-interest points through the woodlands surrounding the Allenwood-area campus, educating the students on topics ranging from soil analysis and tree measurement to camping safety and wildlife.
