Field of Dreams|
Seven Oak Middle School students, on the edge of the Willamette Valley at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Lebanon, Oregon, are transforming eleven acres of secondary growth behind the school into a multi-use area for wildlife, school and community. The eleven acres will include a pheasant habitat, nature trails for hikers, archeological excavation sites for field scientists and an eight station par course for fitness. All the students are involved. The sixth graders are designing and constructing a pheasant habitat. Seventh graders are researching archeological sites and constructing test pits. Eighth graders are involved in the design and construction of the fitness course. Community involvement involves design ideas, resources and technical know-how. The Field of Dreams Project at Seven Oak plays an important role in bridging school and community relationships. This project was made possible through a grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust.
