On a warm and bright morning, area students from Wabeno, Laona and Crandon got out of the classroom for a day of learning about nature at Veteran’s Park Beach at Lake Metonga.

The Lake Metonga Ecology Field Day has been an annual excursion for the past seven years. “Students in the area schools find out things about our lakes and the surroundings in Forest County, they probably never knew. This is a great learning experience for them,” said Crandon co-organizer and presenter, Harry Resch.
