WEEKLY SUMMER PROGRAM WITH LOVELL RECREATION KIDS

The summer of 2016 marked our 5th season working with Lovell’s Recreation Director Meg Dyer to bring a weekly nature experience to the summer day camp program.

We were excited to share five GLLT properties with Lovell youngsters in 2016, and engaged them in a variety of activities while hiking the trails. The Lovell Recreation kids experienced a “sensory hike,” mimicked how a beaver fells a tree (by chomping on carrots), explored a porcupine condominium, met trees while being blindfolded, and built gnome homes—a highlight for all.

Thanks go to our 2016 summer interns, Hannah and Aiden, important members of our local community and of the GLLT staff.

Our plan for summer 2017 is to present two nature programs for the Recreation Department participants based on age levels. We also plan to start a Junior Docent program.
