Trees and Trails is an educational trail system in the woods behind the Burden Orangerie developed to provide hands on experiences that will inspire learning through discovery and adventure in nature! The program is designed to tie into science, mathematics, language arts and social studies lessons. Lessons will be geared toward lower school age children (PK-5), but is open and interesting to ALL ages! Stroll through the beautiful walking trails and enjoy the sights and sounds of the woods.
