31 Oct 5th Grade students went to Lord Stirling Park located in Somerset County .
We took a hike through Lord Stirling Park that was led by an Environmental Education Center Naturalist. This field trip served as an outdoor classroom where students use hands-on learning to explore fields, forests, marshes, and swampy areas along the upper reaches of the Passaic River. The students learned about the different types of trees, fungi and how there wouldn’t be wildlife with deer. They listened intently to discover different sounds they hadn’t heard before and were given a plethora of knowledge about the outdoors. They also got to visit a tree that is older than George Washington (he also visited it) and that it’s good luck to catch a leaf falling from a tree.
