During the week of October 7-11, Nevada Outdoor School partnered with the Lazy P Adventure Farm for our annual fall field trip. Local and rural schools from Humboldt and Lander County participated, bringing over 500 students throughout the week. Students learned about different animals you find on a farm, what they are used for, and even got to pet some baby goats. Next, students learned about pumpkins and the different stages they grow, before heading into the patch to pick out a pumpkin of their own. Students then moved onto the next station, where they learned about different types of corn and how it’s included in products we use every day. Finally, students moved on to the last station where they searched for farm-related clues to make their way through a corn maze.
The Lazy P Field Trip is always a great week where students learn about agriculture through fun, interactive stations. We also want to thank the Lazy P Farm and the Petersen family for providing the location for the field trip.
