We’re looking forward to our second year partnering with Urban Adventure Squad for a spectacular week of hands-on learning at one of the first National Historic Landmarks in America. Tudor Place and UAS are combining forces to offer a unique, hyperlocal historical experience that will be enriching, exciting, and physically active. We’ll explore how waste management and eco-friendly practices have changed over time by learning how the Peter family got rid of their waste, heated and powered their home, and took care of stormwater management, and then find out how if these things are done differently now. This week’s Squad members will become citizen scientists by recording important local data to be shared with professional scientists and they’ll work on a service project to improve the garden at Tudor Place. This program will include off-campus adventures–trips between 1 and 4 miles on-foot and using public transportation–and plenty of outdoor time.
