THE BRONX - Sixth-grade students at the Young Women's Leadership School in The Bronx got a hands-on experience with some creepy wildlife in their classroom.

As part of a science program through the City's Parks Foundation called 'Seeds to Trees,' students were able to hold and examine beetles, roaches and other critters.

The program has brought park wildlife to city classrooms since 1992.

The Young Women's Leadership School students will be attending a field trip in April to Van Cortlandt Park.
