The Five Oaks Academy Nature Trail winds slowly through the woods of our campus. With two entryways, the students and faculty can walk along and enjoy the time outdoors as a community. Through these walks, children learn again how to function as a community: negotiating leaders, followers, stopping points, communication systems, and sharing discoveries. Observation is a tremendous part of the nature trail walks, and discovery is the sweet reward of walking, looking, and sharing new things. The trail winds through local flora and offers a four season view of our immediate natural surroundings.
