In this exciting new class, we’ll discover some of North Clark County’s most important natural and historical sites. Along the way, we will learn to identify a variety of native bird species while exploring the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, a wild and beautiful site located not far from the Columbia River. We will also discover native trees, plants and waterfalls on visits to Lewisville Park and the Lucia and Moulton Falls Trails. In addition, we’ll learn about the unique geology of this region of the northwest when visiting Battle Ground Lake, a caldera existing from volcanic activity. Most importantly, we’ll discuss ways to bring the study of nature and local history to our students through meaningful classroom lessons and field trips. Our adventures will provide ideas that will energize history, science, math and art activities across the curriculum in K-12 classrooms.
