Kingston – The George Washington Elementary School is collaborating with the Kingston Land Trust in creating a natural playscape outside of the Children’s House classrooms. A natural playscape is an outdoor play environment featuring natural elements like logs, boulders, trees, plants, and water that encourage active play, and at the same time challenge children to investigate the physical world around them. 

To help guide the planning and design construction of this project, a Natural Playscape Committee is being formed. Interested volunteers can contact Ann Loeding at the Kingston Land Trust or visit for more information.
