NatureBridge provides hands-on environmental field science education for children and teens in some of the most magnificent classrooms—our national parks. Students will get a crash course in the biology and ecology of the Olympic Peninsula! This is always a very popular 4-day adventure with our 6thgraders.
Key elements of the program include:
A classroom without walls: Located on the shore of glacially carved Lake Crescent, students can investigate old growth forests, wilderness coasts, and alpine peaks.
Inquiry-based learning: Motivated by their own curiosity, students monitor the dynamic Elwha River system, collect and identify macroinvertebrates in Barnes Creek, and study the adaptations of local mammals in our skins and skulls lab.
Responsible actions: Students are inspired to make informed decisions about what constitutes a healthy relationship between natural and human communities, their role in that relationship and appropriate actions they can take to sustain it.
