The fourth graders will be going to Monte Toyon from March 3-6, 2020. They will learn about outdoor education in a setting which cannot be duplicated anywhere. The class will go to the Forest of Nisene Marks and learn about the ecosystem of the redwood forest. The students will also have the opportunity to search tidepools along the coast at the Natural Bridges State Beach.  In addition, there will be plenty of hiking and learning, including a night hike, at the facility as well. It will be a great week of learning and fun!
