Student-teacher groups involved in Collins Academy’s flagship environmental education program, the Paddlefish Project, will begin using a new pavilion at Caddo Lake Natural Wildlife Refuge for their monthly field trips. The 20 ft. by 40 ft. structure is located on a point at Goose Prairie, the birdiest place for waterfowl on Caddo Lake.
Students will be taking to canoes from this location to gather water quality data with handheld electronic probes. They will also be doing some serious birding right where exotic transients of the feathered type love to hang out. Expert birders will be available to assist with identifications and other questions.
