In March of 2016, 15 students and 4 chaperones took a trip to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State for another fabulous outdoor expedition with NatureBridge. We flew into some frightful weather, but the rest of the week proved to be spectacular, providing us with a little bit of rain, snow-capped mountains, and abundant sunshine as we explored the forest surrounding Lake Crescent. Students also had an opportunity to work on the ecological restoration of the Elwha River, the site of the largest dam removal in history (read more here). They climbed Mount Storm King, collected and recorded scientific data to send to the National Park Service, and even caught a glimpse of a tardigrade under a microscope!
