SVVSD Partners with Thorne Nature Experience & City of Longmont

SVVSD, the City of Longmont, and Thorne Nature Experience partnered to create the ultimate environmental education experience at Sandstone Ranch!  In anticipation of providing this opportunity to second graders across the district, Indian Peaks piloted a field trip to the Ranch.  Students were divided into four groups and participated in stations centered around the history of Sandstone Park and the Longmont area.  Aligned with the Colorado Academic Standards, students were able to learn about land and water insects, birds, and the ways humans interacted with the ecosystem.&
