Ecology Students Engaged in Unique Project

The Ecology students of Ms. Kristen Vitkauskas are engaged in a unique ecosystem/agriculture project in which they are raising chickens that will make the interior courtyard of the High School/Middle School their home. The chickens will be free-range chickens meaning they will roam freely outdoors on a pasture (the courtyard) where they can forage for their natural diet, which includes seeds, green plants, insects, and worms.
