EP Rock Students Develop Tree Trek

EP Rock 5th graders are partnering with the Hudson Urban Forestry Board to create a Tree Trek. The Tree Trek will be a self guided tree identification trail around the school. Students in Mrs. Shimon’s class began by learning how to identify tree types based on their leaf type, leaf shape, and a variety of other attributes. Students will work with a publisher to create a Trek Post with the description of the tree, its benefits to wildlife and humans along with other unique facts. Each post will have a QR code so people can read more information if they choose.

We hope to launch our trail this spring.
