County Prep Hydroponics/Aquaculture Class Visits Forest Resource Education Center

Students from the Hydroponics/Aquaculture class at County Prep visited the Forest Resource Education Center in Jackson, N.J. accompanied by their teachers Mr. Nicholas LaVolpe and Dr. Stephanie Szymanski. The students were introduced to the various products that come from trees.

The foresters demonstrated the use of a saw mill to cut a longitudinal section of a tree trunk and allowed the students to analyze the tree structure. The students then proceeded on a guided tour of the forest where they learned about maple syrup extraction procedures and honey production from bees. Students were invited to taste the products to enhance their sensory experience.
