10/21/2016 - SEARCH heads to Talcott Mountain
Mr. Gawitt, Mr. RIley and Ms Jorgensen took the  SEARCH club along with CHS science students on a hike to the top of Talcott Mountain State Park on Thursday to enjoy a glorious fall day in our area. 
The tower was open and allowed students the opportunity to use the observation room and look far out to our neighboring states and counties.  "This is gorgeous!" just about sums up what students were seeing and snapping digital pictures of!  The SEARCH club, with an environmental focus, works on a long-tern Farmington RIver water quality study, participates in the National Ocean Science Bowl at UCONN Avery Point, and this year will continue to add a number of hikes, fishing experiences, and culminate with a research boat trip in June to Project Oceanology in Groton.  We always welcome new members!
