Time: 12:30 pm

The CT Experiential Learning Center’s (CELC’s) outdoor education program at Common Ground gives students an opportunity to bond with peers in the natural quiet setting of Common Ground’s Urban Farm and West Rock Park. Students experience the change of seasons by observing trees and woodland habitats, streams and water flow, and signs of local wildlife at the summit of West Rock Ridge, Judge’s Cave and other destinations. In conjunction with CELC’s theme of Ecology and Sustainability and Common Ground's construction of a new, eco-designed building and improved native wildlife habitats, students take a closer look at sustainable design, ecologically-responsible land use choices, and sustainability in food systems. Overall, the students have fun, get outside, and enjoy activities that build community and leadership. Join us for one or all of these outdoor adventures! Thursdays 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Sept 19, Oct 17, Nov 14, Dec 12, Jan 16, Feb 20, March 20, April 24 and May 15. Ages 9 – 14.
