Nature Trail

For more than 40 years, Haw Creek Elementary's nature trail has been an extension to our classrooms, giving students a healthy and hands-on way to learn outdoors. Now, through a partnership with the Kids in Parks (KIP) program of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, students are able to engage with nature through several experiment stations utilizing scientific equipment.

Learn more about this innovative feature of Haw Creek Elementary- the first of it's kind in the country- through this informative article by Buncombe County Schools or the video below, featuring KIP Director director Jason Urroz.

"We're really excited to working here at Haw Creek Elementary school to convert the hiking trail... into a Citizen Science / STEAM educational trail," said Mr. Urroz.
