Tennessee Hollow Watershed Trekkers (Grades 3-5)

​​​How do healthy watersheds support plant, animal, and human life? In this field-based program, students explore the newly revitalized Tennessee Hollow Watershed and reflect on how people impact land and watersheds in different ways. Students hike through grassland, chaparral, redwood forest, sand dunes, and riparian habitats. The Tennessee Hollow Watershed Trekkers program includes:

  • Exploration of the concept of watershed while experiencing a real watershed
  • A fun, sensory hike where students observe, imagine, identify, and think critically as they document their experience in a field journal
  • An immersive nature experience with wildlife and plant life viewing opportunities
  • A culminating, hands-on environmental stewardship project where students “get their hands dirty” as they improve the park for plants, wildlife, and humans
