Three neighbouring schools answered the Dunnville Horticultural Society’s (DHS) School Challenge in a big way, sending over 600 students to Thompson Creek Eco Centre on October 25 for the Grand Opening. Teachers and students were introduced to the park, while DHS promoted their vision for schools to use the park as an outdoor classroom. Everyone walked the trails and learned about the ecological diversity of this learning centre.
DHS was so pleased by the turnout that all three schools were awarded a Carolinian tree of their choice planted at their school on Oct 30th. Adam Koziel of Earthgen supplied the trees and was on hand to assist with the planting.
