Southern Columbia’s First Grade students traveled to the District’s Nature Trail to engage in a variety of lessons which taught them basic concepts of ecology while gaining an appreciation of the flora and fauna of the area. The lessons were a part of Nature Day, once again organized by parent volunteer, Michele Richards, who is the President & Program Coordinator of Pennsylvania Master Naturalist’s North Central/Northeast Region. The annual event brings representatives from the Bureau of Forestry, Columbia County Conservation District, and other non-profits to the Nature Trail to teach students about this “natural habitat and its inhabitants.”
 
During Nature Day, students rotate to learning stations located throughout the trail, engaging in hands-on activities including a stream study of Roaring Creek. All photos courtesy of student photographer Ethan Brodie.
