More than 100 6th graders from Charles Hart Middle School in Washington, D.C. connected with nature during a field trip to the Chapman DeMary Trail in Purcellville. The field trip was led by 20 juniors and seniors from Loudoun Valley High School, their teacher Liam McGranaghan, and naturalist John DeMary. The 6th graders participated in hands-on activities to learn about trees on the trail, how to be quiet to experience all that nature has to offer, and the concept of Leave No Trace.
