The Sanibel School’s fourth-grade classes recently visited the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s Pick Preserve — located across the street — for a Habitat Study Field Trip. Led by SCCF Educator Richard Finkel, students in Julie Wappes’ and Daryl Peters’ classes observed and recorded the defining plant life within the interior of Sanibel. Finkel reported: “Discovering the diversity of life found within the ecosystem clearly revealed the importance of freshwater habitats for the students. Students enjoyed the outdoor classroom and writing about their observations and excitement into descriptive narratives in the Pick Preserve’s gazebo.”
