Here’s a chance to view the forest, up close and personal. Take a short walk through the forest and help the Greenbelt Educators spot and collect interesting samples to examine. Then we will return to the Education Building to view soil, pond water, and much more under brand new microscopes, a flex cam, and other lab equipment sponsored by the Northfield Foundation. Young naturalists (and their grownups) will learn about the layers of the forest, and life below the forest floor.This program is designed for ages 8-12 and their adult chaperones and is sponsored by Councilwoman Debi Rose. Meet at the Nevada Avenue entrance to High Rock Park.  Registration required.
