Students did some fun things today. They learned wildcrafting skills from Dave with Kaniksu Land Trust and his helper Tropher. Students made arrows, carved spoons from wood, and tanned fish skins into leather!

The Outdoor Track did water-quality testing with Kaniksu Land Trust today. We first tested water in the science lab, learned about the importance of clean water, and then headed into the field. We visited 3 sites: Trestle Creek, Trout Creek, and the Pack River where we assessed Physical and Chemical properties of the water Habitat features of the streams, and performed a Biological assessment.
Why is Mrs. Haag blurry? Bad camera?
Or is it that she is just always moving so fast, she's a blur?
