Getting Kids Outside Doing Science

posted Dec 9, 2014, 8:06 AM by Howard Tuttle
The SVCA and Hidden Valley Nature Center (HVNC) have teamed up to
develop hands on environmental education programs for area schools with
a HVNC grant from the Horizon Foundation. The $10,000 grant allows for
the implementation of curriculum designed to immerse students in long term
“citizen science” projects at HVNC over the course of this academic year.
Fourth grade students from Great Salt Bay School (GSB) in Damariscotta
and the Whitefield Elementary School will be establishing permanent study
plots to collect data on forests throughout the seasons allowing students to
get out and learn first-hand about natural habitats and working forests.
