Completed new "upperline trail" with 2009 volunteer projects. Thank you Mr. Billingley's Freshman Close Up Volunteers! In recongnition of their hardwork, the nature preserve is donating $100 to the Close Up fund, which helps pay for students to go to the capital.
One of Mr. Billingsley students found a quartz arrowhead about 3 inches long in the Nature Preserve. Cool!!!!!!!!!!!
