Ravens Class (ages 9-11)

Our Ravens class students, parents, and teacher hiked into the Olympic National Forest for a two night backpacking trip!  This trip was inspired by class studies of Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen, a young adult story of surviving in the wilderness and Newberry Honor title.  We hiked to an old plane crash site and had incredible experience exploring and being in the wild woods together.

Explorations: Budding Herbalist Class (ages 9-11)

The Raven class just completed our spring session, taking home a handful of wildcrafting and creative experiences. We brought the outdoors in to create water, vinegar and oil infusions, decoctions, hydrosols and a bit of crafting with clay to make tea cups and a recipe book. And of course the joy of experimenting to create some of their own recipes. 

Friday Creative Enrichment Workshop (Ages 8-12)

Projects for the “Rebuild, Refinish, Reuse” workshop are well underway; it’s always fun to discover how many layers and colors of paint are hiding! Sanding the wood is a practice in patience and perseverance and students are reminded that they are building grit as they work toward a finished product – much like walking uphill on a hike and reaching the top with its scenic view.
