Chipola College students in biology and environmental science classes recently hiked a three mile segment of Torreya Park Trails with professors: Dr. David Hilton, Amanda Clark and Dr. Santine Cuccio. The purpose was to deepen classroom studies on ecosystems, conservation, biodiversity, endangered species, hotspots and Florida flora and fauna. Students visited the rare Torreya and Yew understory trees which are endemic to the Slope forest. Students also looked out over the Apalachicola River from a 125 foot bluff.
