Indoor And Outdoor Opportunities Abound At Apple Ridge Farm
At Apple Ridge we transform learning into exploration via the exhibits, wet labs and classes in our Environmental Center and the ponds and ecosystems throughout our 96 acres of woodland and aquatic ecosystems.
On site is a beautiful stream and pond where students can collect and study over forty species of aquatic organisms.
James A. Meador Natural Science Center
Expanding the curriculum possibilities for rainy days and winter season, sessions here consist of a combination of indoor and outdoor activities. One of the teaching tools is a 24 ft. mural by Joan H. Henley that depicts the flora and fauna of our region.
Environmental Center Field Study Activities
We offer teachers a selection of study areas to structure their day at Apple Ridge. Each study area is taught through games and hands-on activities. These options could be used as a day-long theme or combined to create a series of classes. All of the menu options can be adapted to any grade level.
Hiking Trail System
We have seven trails which offer almost five miles of hiking through a wide variety of regional ecological communities, including a 300 yard universal access trail.
