The Department of Natural Resources visited Cherokee Trail Elementary Oct. 2, 2015 to present a wildlife program to fourth and fifth grade students.

Greg Lucas, who works in education and recreation with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources at its Clemson office, brought a variety of reptiles that were held, touched or simply admired by all the students! 

Lucas visits dozens of elementary schools in Pickens, Oconee, Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson counties with his traveling wildlife program.  A 25-year veteran with DNR, Lucas is also a field editor for South Carolina Wildlife magazine, the DNR coordinator for the Upstate Master Naturalist program, and a board member with the Foothills Trail Conference.

 This was a very educational experience for our students and we are looking forward to Mr. Lucas visiting our school again!
