DIABLO LAKE — To truly learn about the great outdoors, one has get out into it and experience the sights, sounds and smells. T
ouch the bark, feel the moss, hear the birds, feel the breeze.
Children who attend Mountain School can do just that.
The school is a 7 million-acre campus with the North Cascades Institute’s Environmental Learning Center serving as its lecture hall. “
We are very fortunate to be able to offer this program,” said Institute’s program coordinator Chris Kiser. “It’s an opportunity for students to make friends and learn about themselves as well as the outdoors. They learn all about producers, consumers and the ecosystem.”
Mountain School packs a lot into three days. The focus is on science, and the natural and cultural history of the North Cascades.
