This program will get kids exploring the ecosystem of the deciduous forests found on the 900 acres that comprise the Blue Ridge Center property where they will learn about the many habitats that deciduous forests provide.  We will follow a food web in the forest, learn what happens when a species is endangered and think about ways that people can reduce their impact on forest food webs.

The hike will be lead by Jennifer Chambers of HikingAlong.com.  Jennifer has fifteen years of teaching experience in environmental and special education and in 2004 started Hiking Along, an organization that works to provide educational hikes for children in the NOVA and Metro DC region.  Recommended Ages: 7 - 14 yrs. old, parents are also welcome. Limited to 25 participants.

This program is being presented for free thanks to support from The North Face.
