Selected fourth and fifth graders at Middletown Elementary School in Louisville, Kentucky (part of the Jefferson County Public School System) participate in the Kentucky Department of Education sponsored Student Technology Leadership Education Program (STLP). STLP children gain valuable technology skills, develop leadership, and provide school and community service. William F. Miles Park at Eastwood Kentucky—adjacent to the new state-of-the-art Metropolitan Sewer District regional treatment plant—is a gorgeous new addition to the Louisville Metro Parks System. The park is unique in that it has largely been left in its natural, pristine state. The many lakes and varied habitats on the property provide wonderful environments for many species of plants and animals. As a community service, Middletown students researched some of the more than 100 bird species which have been sighted at the park by experts such as Barbara Woerner of the Beckham Bird Group. The students’ reports are posted for perusal by anyone who is interested in learning about these beautiful birds. It is our hope that William F. Miles Park will continue to be an ongoing and expanding project for Middletown Elementary School students.

We are very grateful to the Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District for allowing our students to visit the park and add to their web page.
