pic3Students from Westarea Elementary Schools’  “Men of Promise” recently visited J. Bayard Clark Park & Nature Center. ClarkPark is Fayetteville’s second largest regional park and remains a natural woodland area dedicated to preserving the environment.  The NatureCenter showcases both static and live animals. The purpose of the visit was to educate the students on North Carolina plants and wildlife. The Students received a tour from Ranger Rusty and then left with a different perspective on wildlife. Mr. Lattimore, the schools’ social worker, and five mentors from the Fayetteville community ensured that the group received a holistic education in reference to the Common Core Curriculum.
