Discovery Charter School heads to the trails
October 12th was Buddy Bison's first opportunity to hike in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore with students from Discovery Charter School in Porter, IN. Mrs. Essany's third grade students were excited because they were taking a long hike on parts of the trail they had not yet explored. They were also excited to have Buddy Bison along, and worked out a plan so that each student would be able to carry Buddy for part of the journey. It was a beautiful fall day, and the students looked for signs of the season — colorful leaves, acorns and walnuts on the ground, and fungus growing on an old log!
