Keep your fingers crossed for spring sunshine on this exploration of the central part of the state.  This trip is open to all Middle School students.  On Saturday, we will load up the bus and head down to the canyons of the Deschutes River outside of Bend.  Our first stop will be the beautiful Meadow Camp along the Deschutes River Trail.  A short walk will lead us to the base of rimrock, where we will set up a few ropes so that students can try their hand at rock climbing.  After an afternoon of teaching, learning, and climbing in the sun, we will head to a campground for the night.  Sunday will be filled with hiking and exploration of the Whychus Creek canyon and the spectacular Alder Spring.  We will return to Portland by 6pm on Sunday.


The estimated cost of this trip is $60.  Students should bring a lunch for Saturday.  All interested students should email David Zonana (zonanad@catlin.edu) to sign up.
