2nd Grade NUMBER KIDS Visit Bushy Hill Nature Center

On Monday, March 22, Ms. Jukins and her NUMBER KIDS met their Essex Buddies at Bushy Hill Nature Center in Deep River, CT. We learned about gallons, quarts, pints, and cups of maple syrup and we visited the Sugar Shack to taste some delicious syrup straight from the Maple Trees. We hiked in the forest and learned to identify Beech Trees, Tulip Trees, Mountain Laurels, and Maple Trees. Do you know what to do when your leader yells "CAMOUFLAGE?" Run to the nearest tree or rock and hide behind it and freeze!! A great time was had by all.
