Program In Full Swing
It is a great hands-on natural history experience for the children
to understand, observe, and record the many cycles that island
animals and plants undergo each year.
Here are the classes and the places they have adopted:
Kindergarten - Reach Beach
First Grade - Crockett Cove
Second Grade - Scotts Landing
Third Grade- Mariner's Park
Fourth Grade - Shore Acres
Fifth Grade - Settlement Quarry
Sixth Grade - Barred Island
Seventh Grade - Lily Pond
Eighth Grade- Tennis Preserve
Adopt-A-Preserve field trips have been excellent,” said
Don Sargent, parent of kindergartener Amber Sargent. ”The
IHT field guides are great with the kids and hands-on teaching.
My daughter Amber walked away with a new sense of place that
she did not have before.”
