Second-graders from Daniel Axford Elementary literally hit the trail last week.

The students walked the Polly Ann Trail and Powell Lake Township Park nature trail, picking up trash, learning about nature and exploring all their local paths have to offer.

Not only was the field trip a great way to give the kids some fresh air and exercise, it taught them how to take personal responsibility for their environment and to appreciate the natural beauty that's right in their own backyards. Editor C.J. Carnacchio
