The Iola Middle School Kansas History class hosted Melissa Ashenfelter, an AmeriCorps worker helping at Cross Timbers and Fall River State Park over the past year, as a presenter Monday.
Ashenfelter brought with her a variety of specimens for the students to enjoy, including a glass lizard and box turtles, along with pelts of several different animals. She also brought a stuffed turkey, stuffed ducks and a king snake.
The presentation included a mini-lesson on beavers. Instructor Kendy Johnson said the students enjoyed the presentation, particularly because they were allowed to interact with each other and their visitor.
