Welcome to the KRMS Outdoor Ecology Project.
Overview of the Project
The goal of this project is to organize and develop a Nature Trail and an outdoor classroom on the grounds of the Kearsarge Regional Middle School located in North Sutton, New Hampshire. The property has 86 total acres with 19 acres cleared for the building and sports fields and 65 wooded acres remaining. In addition, there are hundreds of wooded acres abutting the school property.
This will serve as an "opportunity" for the 6th grade students to study their Life Science curriculum outdoors and explore ecology in the natural environment right on school property. This will promote learning and appreciation of New Hamsphire Forests and their ecology.
The students in 7th and 8th grades will also be able to use this trail for components of their science curriculum as well.
The KRMS Nature Trail and Outdoor Classroom area will be available for community access.
This project is the inspiration of Mr. Rob O'Neil and Mr. Larry
Saulnier, both of whom are 6th grade science teachers at KRMS. This
section will be updated on an ongoing basis as the Nature Trail at KRMS
comes to life. Students from the 6th grade science classes will be creating
"Reference Cards" of the Flora & Fauna found on the trail and
posting this information in this section.
