As we enter October, fall has been in full swing here at the ELC! We started the semester with some wonderful staff training; staff members, new and old, got together for some staff bonding and explored the ELC property together. Since then we have been busy with several programs including a first grade field trip learning about soil, our first Great School Escape focused on insects, and an E-CAMP middle school group that went hiking at Bobcat Ridge Natural Area. GASP! (Girls Advancing Scientific Progress) has also begun for the semester; we are reaching over 40 students this fall in GASP!. It will be a busy fall and we are excited to continue getting outside and connecting youth to nature.
