Teachers can choose between a visit to the art gallery, wildlife sanctuary, or combination of the two. An art gallery visit will include observation of original art with questions designed to stimulate careful looking, critical thinking, and discussion. Students can take part in a scavenger hunt followed by an art project that will encourage imagination and creativity. Seasonal favorites include visiting the vernal pool in spring for frogs, salamanders, and insects; our fields in fall for insects or seeds; and looking for tracks in winter. Each program will be geared to the age level and curriculum needs of the students.
