Mr. Bruckers' Outdoor Classroom  

 Many moons ago there was a science teacher by the name of Mr. Brucker. Mark believed science was best taught and experienced outdoors. The Mandan Junior High students loved him for this. Conversations sparked their curiosity, creating a hunger to learn more. The news came swift one summer. Mr. Brucker had died. A sudden heart attack had taken his life. The small community mourned the loss of this truly gifted teacher. Five years later those seeds of knowledge he planted earlier burst through the soil, "Mom, I'm going to be a science teacher."

We dedicate Mr. Brucker's Outdoor Classroom to all of our science teachers and to the past, present and future science students. "What you plant today will grow tomorrow."

   This year we are very fortunate to be able to work with so many wildlife specialists from a broad spectrum of federal and state agencies committed to saving the Piping Plover, a small shorebird who visits the sandy shores of the Mighty  Missouri River in the spring.

       In March 2018 the kids went to work on a short documentary. The 18-minute film shares some of the Plover's History. A super big thanks to our conservation peeps, Us. Army Corp of Engineers, ND Game & Fish, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, U.S. Department of Agriculture. Your stories and your work make our dreams bigger.

One more special thank you for our favorite outdoor journalist, Brian Gehring. Your words in print, your visits, and passion for the outdoors inspire us. Thank you, Lori and the Kids
