The ecology team meets during September and October to study various Illinois ecology and nature subjects. Subjects this year include freshwater fish, bats, and mammals. In the past they have included pond ecology, marshes, trees, grasses, seeds, and turtles, I think you get the idea. Students study vocabulary, labeling anatomy , and species accounts to identify. They will compete against other schools in October at Lake Shelbyville. The Eco-Meet is put on by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
