West Hills 5th Graders Dip Into the Great Lakes

WHMS students attended the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center, a field trip made possible by a BHS Foundation grant.  

"We learned about the importance of wetlands in maintaining clean water," Brody Oleshansky shares.  "The wetlands improve water quality by naturally filtering out pollution, help prevent flooding, and provide important fish and wildlife habitat.  It made me think more about why people care so much about protecting our wetlands.
