Environmental Science Goes to Yosemite!

All this week, our Environmental Science classes have been on a week-long trip to Yosemite. This trip was started by Mrs. Zellmer a few years ago and is a highlight of the elective class. This year, Mrs. Brown and Mr. Joyce have also joined as chaperones.


During the week, they hiked to upper Yosemite Falls, Mirror Lake, and the Mist Trail to view Nevada Falls and Vernal Falls. Kids learned about rock climbing, geology, forest ecology, bears, stewardship, decorated cabins, did creative Yosemite themed skits, and made new friends. Kids learned to detach from the screens for a week to enjoy and embrace nature, science, human connections, and just play outside! This is a trip of a lifetime for our students! Check out some of the fun below.
