Learning outdoor skills

Students in the Christchurch School Fall River & Outdoor/Living Campus program wrapped up a busy season in which students learned hard and soft outdoor skills with the guidance of faculty member Dr. Chris Little and CCS Sustainability Coordinator Will Smiley. The fall program is centered around the school’s aquaculture program. Students work on the school’s oyster farm, managing the upweller, overseeing the spat-on-shell site, running the mechanical sorter, and working with Restore Urbanna Creek. They also manage the business side of the farm and host an oyster roast for the school community at Fall Family Weekend’s Taste of the River event. The River & Outdoor Program is offered in all three co-curricular seasons, and focuses on season-appropriate, student-directed, action-based sustainability initiatives meant to scaffold students toward becoming practical stewards of our natural world. Above are, seated from left, Rebecca Pope, Joy Adjei, Amanda Hirsch and Aiden Lian; standing, Dr. Chris Little, Alex Wang, Peter Liu, Jimmy Novak, Connor Huff, Alex Ihrig, Jordan Puckett and Will Smiley.
