As part of the Maryland State Curriculum students need to earn 75 service learning hours as part of their graduation requirement. Students were given the opportunity to work along side SEEC (Sassafras Environmental Education Center) where students explored nature and helped with land conservation.
Students joined Mr. Gilcrest in a beautiful hike along the trails down to the beach gathering litter and debris that may have washed ashore. While on the hike students learned about carbon sequestration on farm fields and forests through photosynthesis. Students wrapped up the day by building a mushroom compost pile for future gardens that help grow local fruit and vegetables that are served right in our home school.
We look forward to the next trip at Turners Creek.
