Grassy Waters Preserve
As part of the Florida Studies field experiences, students visit Grassy Waters Preserve where they take a guided canoe trip to learn about the water supply. A swamp visit helps them learn how plants adapted to live in South Florida, and which species they could use for food, medicine, and shelter as native Floridians did.
Palm Beach Preservation Foundation
A field trip takes students to the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation’s Pan’s Garden to learn more about how native people related to nature. The garden’s “Milkweed and Monarchs” program focuses on environmental awareness, interrelationships, and protection of species, and it leads into the renewal of our butterfly garden at school. Students also work on their own archaeological dig in Bradley Park.
