Kids Discover the Trail! Full Circle Event

05/12/2012 - 10:00am - 1:00pm

Involve all your senses by tasting, smelling, and comparing the ginger plant used to make gingersnaps to our native plant, wild ginger. Everyone will receive a wild ginger rhizome to grow their own patch!  Start your visit at our new Nevin Welcome Center off Plantations Road and follow the trail to the Mundy Wildflower Garden to witness the exploding spring bloom--wildflowers that third grade students study. 

This acitivity is part of the Kids Discover the Trail Full Circle event, where all Ithaca students and their families, and interested community members, are invited to visit the eight Discovery Trail sites between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

Because this year’s fifth graders are the first group of students to have completed the full circle of all eight Discovery Trail-based learning experiences during their elementary school years, this open house style event has been planned to celebrate the “full circle”.
