Students, staff enjoy day at Taft Campus

Chana Education Center visited Lorado Taft Field Campus with a mission to explore the woods. On April 22, students and staff spent the day learning about the various animals and plants in our native Illinois forests and the relationships that they have with each other. Groups started out with various activities to encourage them to take a closer look at the world around them. They went on scavenger hunts to locate items typically found in the woods such as fungi and lichens, and nuts and seeds. They matched paint swatches to colors of various trees, flowers, and rocks. They also walked through a dried gully to look for fossil patterns in limestone rock.
