Spring on the mountain officially began as our new instructors rolled in from
all across the country. These enthusiastic educators have been busy since
their arrival last week. As they trekked across the area we call our home,
they experienced our field based offerings much the same as our students
will in a couple short weeks.
We had beautiful and mostly dry weather as we hiked, camped and navigated
through the Monongahela National Forest. The end of the week was marked by
a frigid but fun exploration of the Sinks of Gandy. This week we’ll learn
about benthic macro invertebrates and stream health through our AWSM program. Our training program will finish strong with one final adventure–rock climbing in the North Fork Valley.
Full of momentum we head into another great spring on the mountain!
