The WAMC Summer Enrichment Program Group 3 students finally got their turn to visit the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum (HHNM) last week. The students hiked the Forest Ecology Ramble trail. It is a one mile hike through open meadows and a forest that is home to mostly oak and beech trees. They investigated the habitats of the forest floor and identified the creatures that make a rotting log their home. They observed remarkable plants and animals in their wild state.
Concepts presented in this program included Ecosystem, Tree identification, Decomposers & Saprophytes, Nutrient cycles, and Invasive species. Please see HHNM’s website and take your kids to this wonderful place we are so lucky to have!
