From tracking and snowshoeing to making bird feeders, the Downeast Lakes Land Trust is leading students from Indian Township, Princeton, and Woodland Elementary Schools in a series of after school adventures designed to build natural history skills and spark a passion for the outdoors.

“Exploring and playing is the way we discover the world around us,“ said Education and Communications Manager, Tanya Rucosky, who is leading the clubs. “We will be having fun learning about the natural world, and leaving it a better place through our activities.”

Downeast Lakes Land Trust offers activities year-round focused on the natural and cultural history of the Downeast Lakes Region.   Programs range from informal community events to formal education lessons aligned to the Common Core Standards and STEM goals.
