On Friday, May 17th, Latham students in the Nature Appreciation club visited several trails at the National Seashore. The club’s first stop was at Fort Hill in Eastham where they enjoyed a picnic lunch. After lunch the students then explored White Cedar Swamp. The students were amazed by the trail’s beauty. Student Michael R. stated, “I feel like I am in Jurassic Park.” As the students continued their hike, they took notes on what they saw, felt, heard, and smelled. “This is the most beautiful place I have ever seen,” exclaimed student Kristos C. After the students left White Cedar Swamp, they continued on to the Salt Marsh Visitor’s Center—the gateway of the Cape Cod National Seashore. At the visitor’s center, the students were able to ask the park rangers several questions about what they saw on their walk. Seeing the students so happy and content put a smile on everyone’s face. It was a warm feeling for everyone on this educational trip, including the staff.
