Engaging Students in Environmental Experiential Education

The Westerly Land Trust will expand their Living Laboratories program to involve students from Westerly and surrounding towns in outdoor experiential learning on a variety of preserves, including the Barlow Nature Preserve which features multiple farms.

The tools gained through the fund will allow students to engage in research projects incorporated into their environmental education lessons as they explore these farms, compost operations, and conserved land.

  Children shown here are using different shaped tweezers to mimic different bird beak shapes to see what they can pick up, or “eat,” with each shape.
