What's Included

In this 14-day summer science course, students will conduct meaningful ecological research while hiking, backpacking, and camping near Mt. Adams in the Pacific Northwest. Students will spend time exploring the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, investigating the alpine meadows, lakes, and glaciers of Mt. Adams, and collaborating with local scientists on ongoing ecological studies. Students should expect a rigorous academic program coupled with relaxation and outdoor recreation. Topics covered include: mountain and forest ecology, hydrology, glaciology, and climate change. A celebratory white water rafting trip down the White Salmon River wraps up the course. Students who participate fully and complete course requirements to a satisfactory level will walk away with a certificate of course completion to be brought to their high school administrator for approval of one semester of high school science credit. Pre-approval of credit is recommended. Please call Cascade Mountain School (503-358-1949) for additional information or questions. 18 hours of service are also available.
