Our next trek will be 9:00-4:00 on Martin Luther King Day, January 20. One Hiram College Van can transport 10 students but parents or grandparents are encouraged join us by driving to Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This trek will showcase hiking in the valley in winter. We will begin the day on the towpath at the Beaver Marsh to observe the winter wetland. Then we will travel to the Boston Store to view displays on Canal history. Lunch will be at the Ledges Shelter with hot dogs and smores provided. Students will interview CVNP volunteer Robert Yehle who will answer student’s questions regarding park history. Weather permitting we will finish with a Ledges hike or Kendal Lake loop.
Each trek will include a preview & follow up after school meeting using technology to record Then and Now stories regarding sites. Trekkers will meet at Crestwood Intermediate school Jan. 15 in room 306 and Jan. 22 in room 212 from 3:30-4:30. Please complete the attached permission slip by Jan. 10 to reserve a spot to CVNP. Costs will be $15 for all three sessions which includes supervision, journal, trade book, snacks, and transportation. (Students who qualify for free or reduced luch fee is $5.)
