We were happy to fulfill a Grant request for Holiday Lake 4H Educational Center, located in Appomattox, VA. They have been in operation for over 80 years. Here we see participants investigate an aquatic ecosystem, collect macroinvertebrates, and determine the health of Holiday Lake and the surrounding creeks during an aquatic ecology class at Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center. Second photo shows Jack Wagstaff, Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center’s Natural Resource Education (NRE) Coordinator, talks about forest ecology with campers during 4-H Summer Camp 2022. A lifelong lesson for the participants in appreciating the natural world around them.
