The program combines a unique opportunity to work in varied curriculums and educate children in forestry/mountain ecology.
Exploration Hannon teaches students how to determine if a new plot of land is acceptable for human life. From hiking to the waterfall to learn about mountain and aquatic ecology to stream mapping and a zip line canopy tour, this program uses exciting activities to enable children to learn by participating in hands-on activities.
