Lyle Torrant Center
Local News, Jackson MI — The Dahlem Conservancy is preparing to host naturalist lead programs focusing on a nature theme, ‘Who Lives There?’ Three separate day trips brings out a different age group from Torrant and will consist of 44 to 49 students (15-17 which are in wheelchairs), 20-30 Torrant staff, and 10-20 parents to participate in discussion, to take a beautiful nature walk around Dahlem’s resin-paved Nature For All Trail and interact in hands-on learning activities. A picnic lunch and free time after the program will round out the group’s field trip before returning on school buses.
This first time partnership between Dahlem and the Torrant Center brings excitement and new community connections benefiting both organizations that promote educational missions. Outdoor classroom visits to Dahlem reconnects people of all ages to nature, awakening one’s sensory levels and increases observation skills… things you just can’t get indoors or from electronic devices.
Dahlem offers five miles of walking trails winding through various Michigan habitats on nearly 300 acres. Trails are open from dawn to dusk every day at no charge. Come enjoy a peaceful walk at Dahlem, Jackson’s Nature Place!
