This year the fifth grade class of Dummerston School immersed themselves in learning about the natural area on local Prospect Hill. They wrote poems, did research and created a wonderful new trail guide. Lindsay Glabach Royce was the teacher and Lynn Levine was the project coordinator and trail guide designer for the Dummerston Conservation Commission. The project was funded by the American Forest Foundations. Trail guides are available a the beginning of the Prospect Hill Trail, the Dummerston Town Office and can be printed from the Dummerston Conservation Commission website. This is a fine example of partners working together to help students learn outside, and demonstrates the value of community engagement in hands-on projects for students.
