About the event
This is a fun Field Institute field trip on a bus to a nature preserve to end our semester together and set off into summer!
During Field Institute of Spring 2023, students in all classes developed a new relationship with the native plants around us.
This is a chance to learn from an incredible organization dedicated to doing their part to conserve, protect, and be stewards of natural open spaces to combat climate change and support the wildlife habitats in and around the San Gabriel Valley.
Arroyos and Foothills Conservancy (AFC) has offered to host us in a Field Trip Day at the Rosemont Preserve in LaCanada, and we couldn't be more excited to offer this program to our Field Institute students that have dedicated themselves all semester.
The day's curriculum will focus on the types of plant adaptations that allow plants to survive and thrive in our Mediterranean climate now plagued with drought. It also teaches about the first people to inhabit our area, the Tongva, who lived in balance with their environment. This program encourages students to become community scientists and their interdisciplinary approach prepares them to use what they learn to create a positive impact on conservation in their communities both now and in the future.
