Outdoor Environmental Adventures

Do you enjoy the great outdoors? Do you love exploring the environment around you? Then, this is the summer class for you. Each day you will watch a brief informational video about a topic in environmental science. You will then receive instructions to complete an indoor or outdoor project, and head outdoors to explore and perform activities. You may be asked to explore an area wetland and discover how the soil works. You may be tasked
with identifying organisms utilizing smartphone technology. You may even be asked to
discover what is impacting the natural world around you using Google Earth. After your
exploration, we will “meet up” online each day, to discuss any challenges and what new
information is discovered. Each day will be a new adventure.
