We are changing up Nature Club! Over 5 sessions beginning in January and running through May, Nature Club will be focused on completing one, big project. Participants will work together to create a map of an uncharted piece of Clifton and build a trail that runs through it. The season will culminate in an unveiling party for the new trail led by the students themselves. This is a chance for interested, motivated naturalists to discover corners of the property that not even the staff have seen! We will focus on new skills each month including cartography, compass-work, and plant ID. By working in the same patch of woods each session and watching it change with the onset of spring, students will have the opportunity to feel deep connection to a piece of land. All materials will be provided. Dates below:
Saturday, January 8th (1-3PM)
Saturday, February 5th (1-3PM)
Saturday, March 5th (1-3PM)
Saturday, April 2nd (1-3PM)
Saturday, May 7th (1-3PM) – Unveiling Party!
