Over the years many people have given their hearts, hands and spirits to the continual creation of the Haw River Learning Celebration. This year’s 25th Learning Celebration was a great success and connected over 1000 4th grade students to this amazing river. Students learned about their “ecological address” and took part in activities along the river of exploration and discovery.explore and discover.
The 25th Anniversary Haw River Learning Celebration Program took place this fall from September 20th, 2014 to October 1oth, 2014. Getting kids outside into nature and inspiring them to be the next generation of conservationists is what it’s truly about! Our volunteer guides use nature as the classroom – and for many children this is their first experience ever, hiking through a forest and along a river. Volunteers give a day or a week of their time an guide students in small groups through activities that explore the woods and river,as well as some of its unique history, all through hands-on learning experiences that weave science and art into a fun day of learning.
Thank you to ALL our volunteers and to the generous cooks who fed us, and businesses who support us, and each year make this the
BEST FIELD TRIP EVER!
