Archery in the Schools

The goal of this program is to provide middle school children with the ingredients to become involved in a life skill that has no barriers.  Unlike many school activities, students of all sizes can easily be involved in archery. Archery allows students to be taught a safe, lifetime skill they can practice almost anywhere.

An Alabama Step Outside™ Program

Creek Kids
Maurice Jackson at Creek Kids
School groups in grades 4 through 8 are introduced to environmental concepts concerning the need of clean water for aquatic animals. Students and teachers wade into Bubbling Spring and a creek at Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park for a hands-on experience with native fish and invertebrates.
 
Participants get an extensive overview of the watershed via a train ride to see the impact of a mill dam on fish passage. Students manipulate an EnviroScape, an interactive educational model that illustrates how pollution can move into the aquatic environment. The final portion of the field trip consists of a visit to the Iron and Steel Museum of Alabama where students learn about Alabama’s iron industry.
