And finally, our T-burg Grade 3 students visited the Mundy Wildflower Garden at Cornell Botanic Gardens last week; and we’d like to share our pictures with you. The students had an amazing time taking what they had learned in the classroom into the garden; they had perfect weather conditions; and they discovered life-long skills about identifying wildflowers. They explored the flowers, learned about pollination, smelled skunk cabbage (see if you can spot those pictures), and one group even happened onto a snapping turtle!

KDT! Trumansburg is a collaboration of the TCSD Foundation, Discovery Trail, and Trumansburg Central School District to provide curriculum-based field trips to the eight sites of the Discovery Trail for Trumansburg Central School District students grades Pre-K through 6.
Last week instructors from CORNELL BOTANIC GARDENS (formerly called Cornell Plantations) visited each Grade 3 classroom and presented a lesson and hands-on activities to prepare the students for their upcoming field trip to the wildflower garden; and here are some pictures from those visits. Thank you to the Trumansburg PTO for funding their program book, “Wildflowers: A Peterson First Guide,” by Roger Tory Peterson; and to our Foundation donors for their support.
