MONTANA, Teton County CD – How long does a honey bee live, which type of soil can easily form a ball, what animal did this fur come from or how do you measure antlers? Fourth graders from around Teton County had these and hundreds of other questions about the outdoors answered when they attended the annual 18th annual Creeks and Critters ﬁeld day held May 2 in Choteau.
Students from Choteau, Fairﬁeld, Power and Greenﬁeld schools spent the spring day learning about how riparian health affects water, soil, wildlife, weeds, aquatic life, bees and plant life. Presenters used hands-on activities to teach the children rudimentary ecological concepts. Sponsored by the Teton Conservation District, Creeks and Critters ﬁeld day brought 70 students to a variety of educational stations along Spring Creek and in the Choteau City Park.
