APES Classes take field trip to hillside

Luke Schneider

Advanced Placement Environmental Science classes surveyed the biodiversity of various plant species across from campus on Coldwater Canyon during the past two weeks.

The purpose of their experiments was to analyze the type, population and proportion of the plants present across the street.

The APES students will soon be tasked with comparing their data from the urban hillside to data from a sample from an undisturbed hillside.
