Some learned about trees and some learned about soil. All discoverd new sights, smells, and sounds when they used their senses to notice the world around them. Fourth graders from the Eddy School immersed themselves into the lessons taught by teachers from MassAudubon Wellfleet Bay and BCT volunteers. Through this seven-year partnership, BCT has been able to offer hundreds of Brewster school children an opportunity to learn about their natural surroundings. Said Eddy School principal Steven Guditus, "It really shows the kids what it means to appreciate their environment. They learn to value it. To respect it.”
