Fall is a busy time of year for education! With school starting, programming resumed in full force. Fourth graders took their first field trip to Robinson Woods for their fall walk. They will return two more times throughout the school year to observe seasonal changes to the habitat. Seventh grade students continued their place-based education at Turkey Hill Farm, ultimately presenting their tree research at CELT’s Annual Meeting on October 22nd. High School Extended Learning Opportunities students met with Education Program Coordinator Ali Gustavson to learn more about non-formal education and the work that CELT is doing in the community.
Unfortunately, many of our fall community services programs were canceled due to the weather, but we were able to host Sarah Dudek from US Fish and Wildlife for a program about New England Cottontail habitat restoration at Runaway Farm. Our winter community programs will begin after the new year, so keep an eye out as registration becomes available!
