Students from Bruce Drysdale Elementary School got a chance to take a science lesson outside.

They took a field trip to Bullington Gardens to take a walk on the wild side.

Students learned fat rings in the trunk of a tree mean a good growing year with lots of sun, water and soil. Skinny rings mean just the opposite.

During their visit to the Henderson County Education Center, they also learned to identify plants. They also discovered why bees are so important to the flowers.

Students say science in the sun is absolutely perfect.

"Well, first you plant the seed then the roots spread and then there's a stem, and then the leaves come, and then the petals come," Rahzelle said.

The kids also got a chance to plant a marigold seed and were reminded to water it and give it lots of sunshine.

Teachers say the education programs at Bullington Gardens are a great way to enhance classroom learning.

The programs and events are funded through fundraisers. The next event is their annual plant sale. It will be at the education center on April 28 and 29.
