April 2010 Cooperative Extension Field Day Events

— Written By N.C. Cooperative Extension

Warren County Cooperative Extension held two educational Field Day events for students in April.  Students from Mariam Boyd Elementary, Northside Elementary, and the Haliwa-Saponi Tribal School participated in both an Agricultural Science Day for 3rd graders and Health and Safety Day for 5th graders. 

Third grade students spent the day at Buck Springs 4-H Center in Vaughan learning about Agricultural topics including North Carolina wildlife and reptiles, soil and water conservation, cattle, sheep, horses, gardening, and forestry.  Fifth graders had the opportunity to learn about food and nutrition, and the rules they should follow for safety when around fire, chemicals, bicycles, tractors, ATVs, electricity, boating, and hunting.

Cooperative Extension employees worked in partnership with a number of local organizations and offices in order to make these events possible.
