Students enjoy fun and education during the Mountain State Forest Festival


Randolph County elementary school students spent Thursday enjoying the Mountain State Forest Festival activities at Elkins City Park.  

Along with a living history exhibit, students attended presentations about recycling, harvesting honey, making maple syrup, much more.  Students enjoyed a fun and educational day and even saw a few dinosaur bones during one presentation.

“Dinosaurs are like a magnet for kids.  It is really that monster that is safe because they no longer exist.  The size of them, the scale of them, the history of them, it is always fascinating to kids,” said Dinosaurs Rock President/Co-Founder Leslie Freund.

Randolph County schools will be closed Friday for the festival.  Activities and exhibits will be hosted Friday and throughout the weekend.
