Camp season closes

FIELD TRIP FUN - Fulton Independent School's 21st Century Community Learning Center Bulldogs Beyond the Bell (B3) program staffers celebrated the end of an awesome and productive summer camp season Thursday by taking students on a trip to Land Between the Lakes. The students visited the Woodlands Nature Center, the Golden Pond Planetarium and the Elk and Bison Prairie. While at the Woodlands Nature Center, the campers took a nature walk and saw baby swallows, deer, various plants native to the area and water lotus plants in bloom. The campers were split into two groups and the walks were hosted by two naturalists who work with the nature center. The naturalists carefully pointed out various facts about the area. While visiting the nature center's backyard habitat, the campers saw turkeys, a bobcat, three types of owls and a family of endangered red wolves who live there among other animals. The animals living in the habitat have either been injured or orphaned in the LBL area. After a picnic lunch - provided for the students by the FIS Summer Feeding Program - the campers and B3 staff members viewed a film in the Golden Pond Planetarium entitled "Earth, Moon and Sun" and then listened to a discussion about the constellations and planets visible in the night skies around Fulton. The field trip brought the fourth week of camps - entitled "Animals, Animals, Animals" - to a close. The field trip was funded with federal 21st CCLC funds.
