The Mad River

The Mad River is our first outing as a new group, it's close to our

Laurel Tree home base and it hosts a number of wonderful local species for our class to observe. We've seen frogs, fish, egrets, herons, swallows, king fishers, snakes and lizards to name a few. We practice traveling, observing, sharing and working together as a team in our first Forest School outing.

Some of our favorite activities at The Mad River:

~Rope extension bridges

~ Observational drawing

~ Rock tossing

~ Mini boat floating

~ Building boats out of found materials

~ Birding

~Frog hunting & observation


~Building dens
