  • Woodland Ecology


    The Nature Hike lesson has been revamped to provide a more engaging experience!!!

    The Woodland Ecology lesson introduces the topic of forestry to students. It also shows the interconnectedness of the watershed, specifically the Chesapeake Bay watershed. In this lesson you and your group will stop at multiple stations to reinforce and learn new environmental concepts. This lesson is designed to suit student and educator preferences; feel free to explore additional topics of student interest and topics that have ties to classroom studies. It is common that students want to spend more time on certain stations over others, especially depending on the season.

    The walk along the trail is made up of a selection of special activities and stations.  The emphasis is on awaking individual senses, learning science concepts, and sharpening perceptions.  The one hour and fifteen minute walk requires doing and sharing by the participants.  Volunteer staff assigned to this activity for the day should expect to walk a total of 4 miles.
