The Wickes 5th grade class visited Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs, AR, on Thursday, April 11th. TCWR provides a lifetime refuge for abused and neglected “Big Cats” with emphasis on tigers, lions, leopards, and cougars. The students studied ecosystems and conservation. They researched TCWR and developed presentations which they presented to lower grades. They also held a coin drive and raised $850.56 to donate to TCWR!
