Kids Discover the Trail! (KDT!)
In this exciting program, launched in 2010, the Trumansburg Education Foundation sends all Trumansburg students from Pre-K through 6th grade to a different Discovery Trail site each year for a curriculum based learning experience. KDT! is a joint effort of the Discovery Trail partnership, Trumansburg Central School District and the Trumansburg Education Foundation. Students return home from the field trips with a take home book and a coupon for a later family visit. Special thanks to the Elementary School PTO and Middle School PTO for funding the books.
