Young Scholars at Dogwood Elementary are learning about natural habitats and environments in the Reston area this summer. To learn more, they went on a field trip to the Ellanor C. Lawrence Park. With the help of park ranger Jim Dewing, the students spotted insects, birds, and many different types of plants. They trekked through the woods and over creeks. Dewing showed them how one species, such as an owl, can depend on the work of a woodpecker to make holes in a tree that becomes the nest of the owl in February. The children also were able to observe a collection of slider and box turtles up close.
