All of us at the CAA would like to give a huge THANK YOU to two great folks, Karla and Lois, who purchased items for the CAA off our Amazon Wish List. We are grateful to for the 10 brand new folding rulers, a much needed new tarp, some shiny new line levels, and a few other supplies. All these supplies will come in handy as students travel to Kampsville for the 2014 season. In fact, students from Northwestern Junior High School, Palmyra, IL, used the new folding rulers today as NJHS students documented the location of soil samples that they tested the pH and nitrogen and phosphorus levels of as part of the CAA’s Seeds of Change Program. We greatly appreciate the support and the new supplies! Thank You!!!
