Date Posted: April 12, 2017

On Tuesday, April 11, Ms. McGonigle and her U.S. History students explored the Cuyahoga Valley National Park as a way to give some real life experiences to their studies. These students are currently learning about our nation's National Park Service through an independent research project. Students have been learning about the history and impact of the National Park Service with a stress on the the importance of reclamation and conservation of our public lands. Students were assigned one of the 58 National Parks in the U.S. and were responsible for putting together a travel guide for their park.

National Park Rangers led the students through many sites including the Beaver Marsh, Virginia Kendall and Brandywine Falls. Thank you to the Rangers and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park! You are both treasures to us!
