Climate Change Hike

Single field trip | Schoolyard/greenspace (1 hour) or wildlife sanctuary (1.5 hours)

Students will explore the schoolyard or a local greenspace OR will visit key areas of a wildlife sanctuary that are being, or will be, affected by climate change and that can contribute to buffering the impacts of climate change.

Examples could include: the increase of southern butterflies and birds; changing moose numbers; the impact of trees on air quality, temperature, and potential flooding; the spread of pests and invasive plants; and more.

This walk will take a hard look at the effects of climate change. Students will also discover the positive steps that can be taken to reduce carbon emissions and climate impacts. If visiting a Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuary, this field trip will showcase how we are monitoring and mitigating climate stressors on people and wildlife.
