9th graders learn, grow in Pacific Northwest
The ninth grade trip to the Pacific Northwest gave students an unforgettable experience, and a wealth of educational and social experiences.
As part of the Keystone’s Outdoor Education program, the ninth-graders spent a week at Olympic National Park, near Seattle, where they had a chance to study the Olympic ecosystem, conduct water-based science measurements and testing, study the effect of dam removals on a salmon migration river, take a long hike and even watch salmon spawn.
The outing also inspired this week’s blog from Mr. Handmaker.
Take a look below at some photos from the trip:
