Early release days are a perfect match for “Wednesday Wanders,” when we bring Ray School students to the trails, streams and ponds in the school’s backyard. Returning to the same places for several years creates a sense of ownership and responsibility- and a lifelong love of nearby nature!
CT River Studies
What better way to learn about hydrology, ecology and biology (not to mention incredibly interesting local history!) than hands-on exploration of the Connecticut River? Through in-class presentations, films and research, students learn how the CT River shaped settlement and industry in New England. The unit culminates with a field trip to the riverfront where they gather data on water quality, erosion and more.
Excellence in Environmental Studies Scholarship
Each year, a graduating senior at Hanover High School is awarded a $500 scholarship from the Hanover Conservancy. Recipients are chosen by HHS science teachers based on the student’s interest in and intention to study environmental science (or a related field) in college.
