Bats will not suck your blood and crickets cannot hurt you. Those were just two of the many things that two first grade classes from J.A. Maxwell Elementary School learned Tuesday on their visit to the McDuffie Environmental Education Center.
The Tuesday field trip marked the first visit by McDuffie County students this year to the MEEC, which is located on the grounds of the McDuffie Public Fishing Area near Dearing.
The MEEC is a collaboration between the McDuffie County Board of Education, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, CSRA Resource Conservation and Development Council, the Watson-Brown Foundation and CSRA RESA.
