Lake Wallace Clean-up ... our 5th Annual!




 Come join the Ecomentors Club and BPS Teachers
              on Saturday, Sept 27, 9am-noon

This little guy is depending on us

Hmm, keep finding owl pellets on this rock

Trail maintenance includes cleaning up the old skimobile bridge





Meet us down by the picnic tables on Foley Field* at 9am
If you can’t make it at 9… come when you can!
*Foley Field = take the driveway past the Belchertown Police Station and keep swinging around to your left.  Park in front of the old school building "Tadgell" and walk along the road to the fields.  We're across the other side, past the pines, down by the water.

Help with trail maintenance, trash pick-up and a little bit of science

Wear gloves and comfortable shoes that can get (very) dirty. 

Adults: bring some yard gear … clippers, rakes, shovels, etc.

For more info  
contact Ms.Levy  llevy@belchertown.org

or leave a message  323-9419  x2111


Be proud!  You'll be joining thousands of volunteers along the entire stretch of the Connecticut River and its tributaries

4th graders and Sophomores team up

for a trip to Lake Wallace
Friday, June 6
After all, the Biology MCAS wrapped up early this week, and the rest of the 4th graders were away at Natures Classroom ... what better chance to explore the local environment?!

Off we go, 


with nets and buckets in tow.


How big is that tree? ...


Timber! gives us a good estimate
there are many things to see when you actually get into the water

... including a surprise visitor



Scoop, sort, identify, sketch and appreciate








yep, even leeches are pretty when you take a closer look!
