On October 26th, Kindergarten through 4th graders went on a Seasonal Exploration Hike at Russ Nature Reserve- Green County Parks. Russ Nature Reserve offers 90 acres of mixed prairie and woodlands with a 4,000-square-foot ranch home to be renovated as a nature education center. The students were excited to learn about the trees and animals that could be found in the area. The Second grade students had excitement when they found a toad on their hike. We will be returning in January to see how the area has changed in the winter time. This is the second year our students visited this Nature preserve, and hopefully it will become a tradition here at Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown!
