Greenvale Lone Oak Nature Area (GLONA)
The Greenvale Lone Oak Nature Area is made up of prairie and woodland. Student activities and units of study have been developed which are used throughout the year. This valuable resource is available to all students and community members.
Rachel Carson Nature Area at Bridgewater
The newest nature area to be developed in Northfield is located at Jefferson Parkway and Highway 246 South. Many elementary students grew the plants and trees and then planted them at Rachel Carson Nature Area during the 1996-97 school year. A pond and “feeding kitchen” are focal points of this area. Student activities and science lessons will be held in the performer/audience arrangement of this nature center.
Spring Creek Nature Area
The Spring Creek Nature Area is a 10-acre wilderness preserve next to Spring Creek School. As part of their life science studies, students learn about the environment and inhabitants of the marsh. Volunteers help with classroom preparation and teachers guide their classes in their outdoor exploration during fall and spring.
