High School (9th-12th) "HIGHLANDS TREKKERS" Program
Monday, October 19, 2020
Our Highlands Trekkers will take to the trails with a new hike each week. As we go, we will learn about our forest and the local plant and animal species. Students will also learn the Do's and Don'ts of safe hiking and how to follow the "Leave No Trace" principles.
Each student will receive their own NY-NJ Trail Conference trail map set of the area, which will be used during our program, and then kept for their future hiking endeavors!
There may be one or two sessions where the drop-off location will differ from the regular parking lot. The location will be less than 10 minutes away from the center, and detailed directions will be provided in advance.
Sample activities: how to read trail maps & trail markers, planning a hiking route, natural navigation, packing a bag, practical survival skills, and citizen science on the trail.
