IRVINGTON, N.Y -- On a recent sunny, spring day, Irvington Middle School eighth-graders participated in a hike to the O’Hara Nature Center. Students cycled through six themed centers that reflected a range of topics studied as part of the eighth-grade science curriculum

Students worked with a yoga instructor and learned and practiced a variety of yoga poses; visited the honey bee and insect pollination station, where they learned the essentials to bee keeping and tasted honey; and explored the geocaching and compass skills station, where they learned about the modern day treasure hunt known as geocaching.

In addition, students attended the nature’s invaders station and engaged in a lesson on how invasive plants and pests can harm the environment and food chain; visited the native animals station, where they listened to a presentation and viewed animals, including a snake, owl and turtle; and observed the native versus non-native trees station, where they participated in a lesson on the importance of trees to the food chain and biodiversity.
