SHS Students Take Trip to Seneca Army Depot

Earlier in the spring, several Solvay High School students took a field trip to the Seneca Army Depot and White Deer Tour in Romulus, NY. The trip was funded through the 21st Century Learning Grant.

During the trip, students learned about The Cold War, and how the Army utilized that area during that time. They were even able to go into one of the Army igloos that was originally built to sustain an atomic bomb attack.

Additionally, students saw a beaver dam, an eagle nest (with an actual eagle in it), several brown deer and 24 white deer! The students learned many interesting nature facts, such as: White deer are not “albino,” as their coloration is the result of a recessive gene, not a mutation.

All told, it was a fun and educational day!
