South Carolina students visit NC Arboretum to learn about plants
BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) —
Some South Carolina students visited the North Carolina Arboretum to experience a unique outdoor classroom.
On Thursday, there was a science experience that focused on botany, which is the study of plants.
The 16 students were divided into two different groups. As they walked along the trail, their goal was to use the buds and bark to identify as many trees as possible.
Students said they enjoyed being outside but were hoping it would be a little warmer in North Carolina.
Students said they remember this same trip to the arboretum when they were in the fifth grade.
