Grade 7-8’s Spend a Day at the BOERC

Salamanders, field voles, tree frogs, oh my! These were just a few of the woodland critters that the Grade 7 & 8 students met on their adventure at Ridley’s own Burgoyne Outdoor Education and Research Centre (BOERC).

The Grade 7s built debris thatch shelters and explored the woodland’s natural percussions.

The Grade 8s investigated a few more critters and different vegetation on an ecosystem scavenger hunt, and interpreted the landscape with impressionistic watercolours and oil pastels en plein air.

What a day! The sunshine in the afternoon made for an enjoyable, summer-like hike around the property along the marked blue trail and bog walk.
