Child Care and Learning Center Afterschool Enrichment program students study the veins of a paulownia tree leaf, using a zipscope and one of the center’s laptop computers. CCLC received the computers as a grant from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative through its “Operation Round Up” program. Under the guidance of CCLC’s Children-in-Nature director Christina Loock, students study botany and zoology around the eight-acre campus. Other recent projects include building butterfly gardens, harvesting vegetables from the school’s gardens and studying local birds in the fall.
