It’s Always Sunny on Sunflower Hill

Two naturalists from the Science Center spent their morning walking around in the freezing cold, but with the best of reasons.

Joining students and teachers from the INLY School in Scituate, they walked up and over Sunflower Hill (known on your topo maps as Walnut Tree Hill) and discussed the visible history in the landscape, taking a virtual “journey through time.” The school is considering putting in a trail system and the naturalists’ hope was to inspire the students to think about trail interpretation signage: what do the stonewalls stand for? what do the trees tell us? the brook? What is it about this place that is special to you as students, something that you want to share with others?

We can’t wait to see where this project goes!
