This week, MVES 5th teachers, students, and parent chaperones are participating in the North Cascade Institute’s Mountain School.
Mountain School is a nationally recognized environmental education program offered by North Cascades Institute in cooperation with North Cascades National Park. Mountain School students come to the North Cascades with their school class, teacher and chaperones to learn about the ecosystems and natural and cultural history of the mountains. Mountain School gives young people an experience they will remember forever.
The 3-day 2-night program is based at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center located in North Cascades National Park. While at Mountain School students spend a majority of their time outside, hiking on trails and exploring the watersheds, forests, plants and wildlife of the North Cascades ecosystems first-hand through interdisciplinary activities in science, math, art, social studies and conservation.
We look forward to hearing about your adventures upon your return!
