The Environmental Science class studies the Habitat, Niche and Ecosystem of our trees using a student-developed rubric within the common Core. The class was also invited the visit the Nutley garden of Silas Monstier and was given a tour by Graeme Hardie. This is the NCPP’s forth year sponsoring the contest and we thank all of those who assisted and participated.
