On the Ecology Trail, students investigate the connection between living and non-living elements of the forest ecosystem. Students visit different areas of the forest, examine changes in biotic and abiotic factors, and draw conclusions about natural relationships between plants and their surroundings. Students also learn how to use a dichotomous key to identify local trees and shrubs, including pines and cedars over 300 years old.

I feel that ECOS is a great chance for my students to see themselves differently than they have before. They really grow during their week here.

I cannot emphasize how much I love this program. The experience is like nothing else and is such a pivotal experience for students of this age. This program is so important for them to get ready for Junior High. As long as this program is offered, I will make sure my school attends.

Before I came to camp, I never really thought science was fun or interesting at all. Thanks to you, I figured out that we depend on science and science depends on us.

Being at this wonderful place for a week, seeing and realizing what you could do and change in society, seeing the bright candle of your life burn, and imagine what it could be…Not only did it make my dreams dear, but it was a piece of my life that I’ll never forget.
