Outdoor Education at TGS
LEARNING FROM NATURE IN NATURE
The Greenspire Campus borders the Grand Traverse Commons Natural area, a 140 acre park in Garfield Township. With miles of unpaved trails and a variety of protected natural habitats, the park has become one of Greenspire’s most unique, important, and popular “classrooms”.
The Greenspire staff understand the educational, emotional, and social benefits of experiences in the natural world and utilize a three-pronged approach to fulfill the ecologically relevant and environmentally focused components in its mission.
