​​​​​​​Spring Exploration: Plants, Animals, Weather and Water!
Regrowth & Rebirth!  
Campers will explore some of the most distinctive signs of spring, including wildflowers, spring ephemerals, and flowering trees during forest hikes. We'll use plants for craft inspiration, and play some fun plant-themed games.

Weather & Water!  Campers will learn about the changing seasons and the role of our watershed by exploring the Blue Mine Brook, spring vernal pools, and our raingarden, and have fun with water experiments.
All About Animals!  We'll enter the world of animals as we learn about their big jobs that happen every spring, including migration and reproduction, and learn how to observe, identify, track and inhabit the world of our local fauna.

Note: the activities will vary to accommodate the weather and site conditions.

Activities include:

  • Hiking to amazing viewpoints and historic ruins
  • Exploring the forest for signs of animal habitat, the changing seasons, and the lifecycle of the forest
