During our travels we will visit Fool Hollow State Park, Petrified Forest National Park & backpack into magical Canyon de Chelly! Learn about the importance of water from the leaders of the Dine Tribe & discuss their roles in water allocation & protection.
Hands-on research conducted by students as we camp, hike & backpack will give them an awareness of the interdependency of all living things & create a sense of wonder surrounding the ecosystems of the Southwest.
