Students are going beyond the "traditional" classroom to experience a more hands-on learning environment. Flagstaff Rotary Club, Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, and The City of Flagstaff created an outdoor learning zone for students to gain a more interactive understanding of their surroundings.
The outdoor classroom, located at Francis Short Pond, is helping students understand the importance of their environment. Ada Currant, a 4th grade student, says she learned how to take samples and temperatures of the pond water.
Moran Henn, Willow Bend Executive Director, says she is honored to be a part of such an amazing learning experience. Henn is excited to contribute to future generations.
Coral Evans, the Mayor of Flagstaff, says public use of the area is a positive reflection of the Flagstaff community.
