The Dahlem Environmental Education Center

Thank you Hunt Elementary 4th grade class, Mrs Matz and Mr Lee for participating in Annie's Big Nature Lesson science-based week-long studies at Dahlem. It's been a great week filled with educational lessons, fun, team and self confidence building, and so much more!! Today we discussed and built debris shelters; why, when, where & how. Then they did a stewardship community service project pulling non-native invasive garlic mustard plants.
Great job everyone!
