Pitt County Students Get Outside For Earth Day

It's Earth Day and students in Pitt County got a hands-on approach to learning more about saving the environment.

A Time For Science is a non-profit nature and science learning center that sits on 400 acres of land in southern Pitt County.

Dozens of students got the chance to get out of the city and into the woods Tuesday afternoon.

Students discovered how to garden organically with worms and searched for tree frogs native to Eastern Carolina.

Nancy Bray and her husband John founded the center in 2008. Both taught science in Pitt County for about 40 years.

"We've got foxes, we've got wild turkeys, we have all kinds of wild animals," says Nancy. "And now that we have all of this and you walk around here, you want to share it with people. And that's what we did. That's why we started A Time For Science."

Bray hopes her non-profit will inspire students to get outdoors and protect the Earth for future generations.
