Attention area teachers! The Hamilton-Trenton Marsh Education Committee has announced release of support materials to guide teachers in their use of the marsh as an outdoor classroom. Educators will find planning suggestions, maps, a nature trail guide, lesson plans (K-6), overviews of topics in ecology, geology and history, tide tables, species inventories and more in the Teacher's Guide and Resource Manual. Resource Kits, available for loan free of charge, contain scripted slide programs, a video, organism ID cards and books, magnifying glasses, collection nets, etc. The Nature Trail Guide is also available separately. See information below on how to obtain these items.

The materials were developed by botanist Mary A. Leck, Ph.D. of Rider University and Patti Quinby of D&R Greenway, who have spent countless hours studying, photographing, exploring and documenting the natural wonders of Hamilton-Trenton Marsh. WCAS board members Lou Beck, Joe Schmeltz and Pat Sziber serve on the H-T Marsh Education Committee, which was founded to promote and guide use of the marsh as an educational resource. The Committee is hosted by Rider University. For more information on the materials, visit the marsh website at http://www.rider.edu/sites/marsh.
