May 1, 2012 - On April 30, 90 students from two middle schools on the Eastside came to Glendale Country Club in Bellevue, Wash., for an outdoor "learning lab." Parents, teachers, state and regional golf association officials, environmental groups, as well as representatives of Puget Sound-area schools and school districts, brought the total to well over 120 attendees.
Students tested water quality and soil samples, identified insects from a pond, conducted water measurements in Kelsey Creek, and learned about the life cycle of salmon. They also had a putting contest on the practice green.
