Agri-Science, Botany & Zoology
The Agriculture program provides students with experimental learning opportunities in botany, greenhouse management, zoology, and veterinary science. Students will learn plant anatomy, physiology, soils and plant nutrition, tree and wildflower identification, forestry, and greenhouse management. Hands-on experience in our interactive learning lab, woodlot, and community partner locations will take learning out of the classroom into real-life scenarios.
This block course is appropriate for students interested in agriculture, food, and natural resources. Aspects of animal anatomy, physiology, and health will be taught in the classroom and brought to life with experimental learning opportunities. Hands-on projects could include agriculture production, incubation of eggs and rearing of chicks, raising broiler chickens, beekeeping, and more. Students in this class will have opportunities to improve leadership, personal growth, and practical skills through participation in the Fowlerville chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA).
