BEAVERCREEK — Students from public, private, parochial and home schools benefit from the educational programs offered by Greene County Parks & Trails (GCP&T) with natural science and cultural heritage educational programs offered both within a classroom setting as well as GCP&T sites throughout Greene County.

Students from Cunningham Home School visit the GCP&T’s Narrows Reserve Nature Center in Beavercreek each month with a different program topic.

This month, the students learned about the Monarch butterfly, tying knots and building a shelter in several hands-on activities.

The park agency’s School Environmental Education Programs (SEEP) offers a hands-on way of learning to connect students to the natural world. GCP&T also offers educational trunks focusing on history and the Underground Railroad that may be used by teachers at no cost as well as programs geared towards educators.

For more information about school programming offered by Greene County Parks & Trails, call 937-562-6440 or email info@gcparkstrails.com.
