Environmental Science Students Develop Deeper Understanding of Ecosystem in the CVNP

Sep 23, 2019

On Wednesday September 18, students from AP and CP Environmental Science class toured the Cuyahoga National Park led by Park Ranger Kerry Muhl and Hayden McNeil. The park rangers led the students through three stops: The Beaver Marsh, The Ledges at Virginia Kendall and Brandywine Falls. While at each of these sites, the park rangers educated the students on the importance of clean watersheds, important species for ecological health (like beavers and native species) while warning of the dangers to ecosystems such as invasive species and how we as humans can affect the park in both negative and positive ways. They also explained how to help out through service projects and how to become a park ranger.

Thank you to Ranger Muhl and McNeil for helping our student's grow in their knowledge of our ecosystem!
