We spent the weekend at CalWood Education Center, hiking, camping, and practicing wilderness survival skills. Students hiked 2 miles in to the campsite, set up a wide range of shelters (tarp shelter, tent, schwag), and, after some lunch
we hit the trail again to do some wildfire mitigation.
Students braved a cold night, using hot water bottles at their feet to stay warm, and loving the fire early in the morning.
After a second group hike to see a waterfall and mountain lion’s winter cave,
After another delicious lunch, everyone piled into the van and headed for home.
Many thanks to our co-instructor Kelly Grebe for her assistance and expertise of the local flora, fauna, and landscape.
