A Hidden Oasis Discovered!

We are thrilled to share an exciting discovery following the recent sewer construction – a hidden natural clearing at the end of the newly-formed pathway! As we reached the termination point of the cleared pathway, we uncovered not only a picturesque clearing but also several convenient access points to the shallow parts of our creek.

This newfound clearing is a breath of fresh air, offering a peaceful and safe retreat. The creek, previously tucked away, is now easily reachable, providing opportunities for a wide variety of nature-inspired adventures! Moreover, the cleared path itself holds much potential for nature trails and activities. Along its 1100-foot stretch, we now have multiple access points to areas of our property that were previously inaccessible, offering the perfect opportunity to for trail-based activities.

Among these initiatives will be a planting drive to replenish some of the natural vegetation lost during construction. Additionally, each classroom will be provided with their own “Nature Space” for a variety of projects. From constructing nature-inspired installations to integrating hands-on learning experiences, there are so many possibilities!
