Hillandale Garden & Outdoor Education

The Hillandale Family has been hard at work establishing an Outdoor Garden and Outdoor Learning Classroom!  We have a new Grasslands habitat, Woodlands habitat, vegetable garden, and pollinator garden.  We look forward to using our new classroom.  Some of our units of study are:

Ecosystems, wildlife habitats, life cycles of plants and animals, weather observations and measurements, animal observations and study, soil and plant life.


Thank you to all our Community Partners who made the gardens possible!
