Students in the park
Since the park’s beginning, school classes have visited the park to study its plants and wildlife.
That tradition continues today- Media Providence Friends School already held a science class in the park this year! They wrote an article about how their Elementary and Middle School students visit the park throughout the year to learn about science, art, environmental studies, and even Spanish!
Media Elementary School studies in the park have included conducting a food web analysis of a pond ecosystem.
We even met a college student majoring in Environmental Studies who spent this summer studying the ecology of the park!
We learned that Penncrest High School conducts ongoing ecology studies at the park. As we learn of more schools, we will list them here. If you know of other schools involved with the park that are not yet listed, please let us know!
