Outdoor Education

Outdoor EducationStudents supplement their science education by spending time in the world’s classroom – experiencing the Nature Trail and The Learning Barn behind school and the Butterfly Garden outside the front entrance.

  • The Learning Barn was built in the fall of 1997 by staff, the community and friends of Bell Top School and funded by a Toyota Tapestry Grant. Many fun and creative activities take place within The Learning Barn, including maple syrup production and apple cider pressing.
  • The Bell Top Nature Trail is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Schoolyard Habitat. Students enjoy walking along the serene paths to a waterfall while observing seasonal changes.
  • In 2015, students and teachers planted a Butterfly Garden in front of school to help preserve the endangered Monarch Butterfly population. The garden was designated a Monarch Waystation by the nonprofit group Monarch Watch, an affiliate program of the Kansas Biological Survey.
