Review for Bayou Land Conservancy, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with the Bayou Land Conservancy (formally known as the Legacy Land Trust) was fantastic. The knowledge staff and hands-on learning experiences helped my students connect science material that we were learning in the classroom, such as food webs and adaptations, to real things in nature. I work in school where 90% of our students are English as Second Language Learners, so this sort of visual and tactile experience was incredibly impactful for them.

The entire trip, from planning to execution, was incredibly well organized and thoughtful. Not only I was impressed, but so were my studetns! Theyreally enjoyed all of the hands on activities, in particular the pond sampling. On the bus ride back to school, students were trying to point out red maple trees that they had seen and learned about during their visit!

Role:  General Member of the Public & I took my 5th grade class on a field trip to the Bayou Land Conservancy to explore food chains and food webs, collect and analyze samples from a pond, and get rid of an invasive plant species. .
