Students got to be up close and personal with Mother Nature at the Outdoor Classroom on Thursday.
From animal skulls and pelts to live chickens and goats, it was all hands on during the Earth Day festivites.
On Thursday, about 675 students visited the outdoor classroom, said Relissa Nials, coordinator of the event. Nials is a soil conservationist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Some students do not have the opportunity to pet a goat or see a chicken up close, Nials said.
