Buffalohead Park Pond
(3) Students, through the inquiry process, demonstrate knowledge of characteristics, structures and function of living things, the process and diversity of life, and how living organisms interact with each other and their environment.
This secluded two acre pond is located just south of Flathead Valley Community College. The pond is open to family fishing; anyone can fish. Adults 15 and older must release their fish. The pond is stocked with assistance from the Edgerton School.
