Environmental/Veterinary Sciences

Course Description:

Do you like animals, plants, or just being outdoors? Then have we got the class for you. Environmental/Veterinary Sciences is full of animals, plants, and more! Students start off the year raising chickens in our very own MACTC Animal Discovery Center. Students also learn about animal health, reproduction, and anatomy and physiology. In our student-run greenhouse students learn how to plant and care for vegetation. Students even learn how to tap Maple trees to make their own maple syrup! Other exciting opportunities include FFA convention and competitions, a student grown plant sale, and creating beautiful floral arrangements for Mother's Day, prom, graduation, and other special events.

Second-year students will have the option to study any area in more depth such as animal grooming, veterinary sciences, floral design, greenhouse management, landscape design, and others. Certification in floral design, grooming, pesticide application, and nursery and landscaping are all available to second-year students.
