The goal of this Go Wild project was for students to create a published, multi-copy field ID resource for other students at Frank J Mitchel Elementary School, focusing on trees and shrubs on their immediate school property and local wetlands. Students involved in the project spent time in nature researching, curating, and taking photos of local trees and shrubs. At the end of the project, students have become more knowledgeable about their local plants and trees.
