Week of February 28th – March 6th

We welcomed New Prague Middle Schools and the YES Program.

This week, New Prague Middle School visited Eagle Bluff in three different groups; Justice League and Red Bulls came for a Monday through Wednesday visit, and Navy Seals came for a Wednesday through Friday visit. While they were here, the 6th graders were able to experience Oneota, Pioneer Life, Winter Survival, Group Challenges, Animal Signs, Treetops, and GPS Pathfinders.

People from the YES (Youth Energy Summit) Program held a meeting at Eagle Bluff.
