The students will be traveling by bus to Coppell Nature Park at Wagon Wheel Park tomorrow morning, November 13, leaving at 8:45 am. Students will be recording amounts of vegetation, counting wildlife, and analyzing and evaluating the health of the water in the creek. Students are taking the proper precautions by wearing long pants and long sleeves, shoes with plenty of traction, and bringing a sack lunch and plenty of water.  The students are expected to return to Coppell High School by 2:00 pm.
