Local Orange County Kindergarten students along with their two teachers and parent chaperones visited the South Coast REC Youth Garden for the classes' first field trip. After setting their own rules of conduct for the morning, the excited children were split up into groups to participate in the activities conducted by UCCE Master Gardener – Orange County volunteers. Teachers, parents, and children alike enjoyed learning about insects in the garden and plant anatomy. All the students were sent home with ‘Good Bugs in the Garden' coloring books, and their painted lady bug rock.
