Mighty Acorns Article by Harbor Country News - Check it out!

Posted on November 7, 2017

It is officially the beginning of the second Mighty Acorns season, and here at COL we could not be more excited!

The fall field study trips are complete for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades at both River Valley Elementary and New Buffalo Elementary. Each field study trip involves three interactive activities that directly correspond into what the students learn in the classroom. River Valley Elementary came out to Robinson Woods and participated in nature exploration, a nature game and stewardship activities by helping plant native plants along with removing invasive species on the preserve. New Buffalo Elementary has an easy walk to the adjacent Turtle Creek Preserve and also did nature exploration, a nature game and stewardship by starting to remove the invasive species, oriental bittersweet.

Keep up the good work Mighty Acorns and see you in the winter at our next field study trips!
