In addition, will follow the Washougal Public Art Tour route, to discover more than two dozen locally created public artworks. We will also learn to identify dozens of native plants and trees on forest hikes along the Lacamas Creek and Round Lake Trails. Most importantly, we’ll discuss ways to bring the study of nature, art, local history and culture 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.
