Educators' Corner

Each spring and fall Hopkins Forest hosts curriculum based field trips for regional elementary schools.  Each visit is guided by student educators from Williams College and is tailored toward the curricular needs of the visiting school.  In the age of Covid-19 we have cut back on on-site visits; in lieu of guided field trips we hope that you will be able to utilize our on-line guides to craft your own exploration of the natural world, whether it be in a local park or your own backyard.  The activities below are suitable for teachers, students, home-schoolers and nature enthusiasts alike.
