The Lakehill Upper School biology class traveled to Galveston Island recently to dive a little deeper into their studies.
While in Galveston, students had the chance to visit a turtle research facility, explore a salt marsh to collect fish and invertebrates, and kayak through small channels to identify a variety of native plants and animals. They also collected specimens with a trawl net in the deeper water of the Houston Shipping Channel.
The class spent time at Brazos Bend State Park where they observed alligators in their natural habitat. Visits to the Houston Museum of Natural History and the George Observatory expanded their knowledge of paleontology and astronomy. "The biology trip was fun, action-packed, and wonderfully exhausting," said junior Steven Murff. "It was an amazing experience that I won't soon forget."
