Black Hill Partnership Blog
In the fall of 2015, Barnesville embarked on a school-wide partnership with Black Hill Regional Park to enhance outdoor and environmental education across the School’s curriculum. This blog chronicles related programs and activities.
8th grade is studying forest layers. They hiked in Dickerson to see the State Champion Sycamore Tree. A short video slideshow is on YouTube. The Bluebells are in full bloom!
On Tuesday, April 12, the eighth grade class of the Barnesville School of Arts and Sciences went to Black Hill Regional Park. There, they learned about different layers of a forest, like the herb layer and canopy layer, and about how these layers can be damaged in circumstances like forest fires. They observed an area where there was a fire recently, as well as an untouched area, and discussed the differences. They also witnessed a tree climbing demonstration. Students learned about safety practices for tree climbers, pruning techniques, and how to keep trees healthy.
