(10/24/12) - There's no better way to learn about biology than to get out of the classroom and go outside.
That's exactly what some Bay City students did Wednesday morning.
Bay City Public Schools took students to the Bay City State Recreation Area Wednesday morning for some hands-on learning.
The GM Global Rivers Environmental Education Network, run by the national organization Earth Force, organized the program.
Their goal is to inspire kids to be active in their communities and learn more about watershed issues.
"It's important to get their hands on it. Some of this is tough to do in the classroom. We just don't have the resources of an eco system in the city, so it's nice to get some of the kids, some of these kids have never been out to the water before," said Toby Schisler, Bay City Central biology teacher.
General Motors has put on the green program in more than 32 communities nationwide for more than two decades.
