3rd grade students at Waverly Yowell Elementary went on a field trip to the River’s Edge Nature Preserve in Fredricksburg, VA.  It provided the students with a hands-on, outdoor science experience. They saw firsthand a marshy area of the Rappahannock and its watershed.  They hiked to the wetlands and played a food chain/food web game.  It was AWESOME! The kids really seemed to enjoy it and they represented Madison very well!
