"I am an educator at Seneca Academy, an independent IB school in Darnestown, Maryland and have been teaching Kindergarten for many years. One of our units of inquiry is on Observation. What better place for the children to “observe” than in nature! As a result, we have been taking field trips to LAND in Dickerson for many years. The children explore nature in meadows, fields and woods. They even spend time exploring a creek! Every year we are delighted with plants, bugs and animals from birds to fawns, and snakes to crayfish. The grounds at LAND are beautiful with surprises at every turn.
Garth and Amy are wonderful to work with and even better with the children. They are responsive and concerned with my curricular requirements, and always keep the safety of the children at the forefront.
I look forward to many more field trips to LAND!" Pam Hauck Kindergarten Teacher Seneca Academy
