It's summer vacation! To celebrate, I took some time to finally post the WildLink Expedition Photos from mid-May. It was a "bonus" expedition that owed its creation to collaborative efforts with New Leaf High School in Martinez, CA. Since they only had four students that could attend their regularly scheduled expedition, the good folks at NatureBridge asked if we'd like to fill out New Leaf's trip. It took all of ten seconds to recruit the six awesome students that got to spend an entire week backpacking in Yosemite for free thanks to NatureBridge grant funding.
Three of the THS students on the trip had never been to Yosemite, and one got to see and touch snow for the first time in her life! As an added bonus, two students from this trip made such an impression on their educators that they earned a coveted spot in the WildLink Career Connections Program this summer to job shadow park employees for two weeks!
