    Marsh - Billings - Rockefeller

    National Historical Park Vermont

4th Graders Visit!

December 13, 2012 Posted by: C. Siegler & WES 4th Grade class
On Friday, September 14th we went to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park. We had an amazing time when we saw old car parts in the woods and the foundation to the McKenzie house. We liked the hike and had a lot of fun drawing in our nature journals. At the Pogue we saw a heron. We learned a lot about what was there before it was a park from Rebecca Phelps, a Vermont State forester. The trip was awesome and we learned a lot!
