My Students

Biodiversity can't be maintained by protecting a few species in a zoo, or by preserving greenbelts or national parks. To function properly, nature needs more room than that. It can maintain itself, however, without human expense, without zookeepers, park rangers, foresters or gene banks.

We are a charter school that serves kids in several surrounding areas.

We are grades 7-12 and are a title school with a high population of special education students (roughly 42 percent) and also have a high free and reduced school lunch program. The majority of our students live on farms and come from single family homes. Some of our students live on their own trying to finish high school as well.

My Project

I am requesting a all school field trip to the Minnesota Zoo. Throughout the school year students have taken classes in either Minnesota Wild Life or Oceanography. Taking students to the Minnesota Zoo will enable students to put things they have learned into real life experiences.

Students will always remember things that they see and touch better than what they have imagined or worked on in the classroom.

A student will remember a field trip for many years rather than remember they studied wildlife in a classroom.
