The fourth graders will be going to Westminster Woods from April 10-13, 2018. They will learn about outdoor education in a setting which cannot be duplicated anywhere. The class will go to the Armstrong Redwoods and learn about the ecosystem of the redwood forest. The students will also have the opportunity to search tidepools in Salt Point State Park. The class work in Dutch Bill Creek and generate data about the healthiness of the creek. 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!
