PPLT Helps 600 Kids Learn About Nature

      Prickly Pear Land Trust recently posted this photo showing students pretending to be two species of birds competing for food to help explain how natural selection and evolution happens. The class worked together to model changes in bird population trends based on available food sources.

     This was just one of forty classes the PPLT outdoor education program has facilitated. PPLT has engaged over 600 students in outdoor education on PPLT properties and public land around Helena in 2021.
