On Friday, Oct. 11, eight students hopped in vans headed for Tupper Lake. They met up with employees from the Department of Environmental Conservation and trekked through a wetland area in search of the endangered spruce grouse. With an antenna to help pinpoint the location of one of the male birds, students were able to see the spruce grouse up close. From there they visited the Spring Pond Bog Preserve where they hiked along the edge of a beautiful bog and learn about their surroundings from their professors. To end their day, they visited the Wild Center, and strolled along the Wild Walk, an elevated trail across the Adirondack treetops.
