ADVENTURE CAMP

Monday February 19, 2018
(President’s Day)
8:30am – 5:00pm
Ages 10-14

Investigate how watersheds work! Visit the North Olympic Land Trust team in Port Angeles to learn about conserving important local watersheds, then van out to the Lyre Conservation Area past Joyce. Trek one mile down an unpaved trail to the mouth of the river. Along the way explore the history of this area, using your senses to help create nature journals to document your journey. Lunch at the beach, and explore the shore. On the return to the trail head, ‘free the trees’ with the Clallam County Conservation District by removing protective rings that have been preventing saplings from being eaten by moles and other creatures. The trees have outgrown their rings and they need to be removed before the tree is damaged. Return to Feiro with a sense of accomplishment from your adventure.

What to bring:
Backpack
Lunch
Snack
Water bottle
Raincoat**
Layers for warmth**

(A Sanican is available at the Conservation Area.)

UNDERWATER ROBOTICS CLUB

Club Focus
Learn more about the world of designing, building, testing and competing in underwater robotics challenges.

In 2016 and 2017, club participants competed at the national SeaPerch competition in Baton Rouge and Atlanta. Teams also compete regionally at Olympic High School in Kitsap County.

We are enormously grateful to our sponsors who help offset the costs of this program in 2018: Beta Nu Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society and the Landing Mall (who hosts our water-based practice site).
